Sample illustrations:
1. |
April 15 |
April is the first month of the quarter, hence, 0 is added to 15 to give a total of 15. 15 is divided by 7 gives 2 remainder 1. Hence, April 15 is Monday. |
2. |
August 22 |
August is the second month of the quarter, so 3 has to be added to the date giving a total of 25. Divide 25 by 7. The answer is 3, remainder 4. Hence, August 22 is Thursday. |
3. |
June 9 |
June is the third month of the quarter. Therefore, add 5 to 9 giving 14. Divide 14 by 7 gives 2 with 0 remainder. Hence, June 9 is Sunday. |
