In today’s article, **Hoang Ha Mobile** will show you how to calculate the number of weeks in a year, thereby answering detailed questions about the 2024 New Year calendar.

**Origin and history of calendar**

Calendar (in English is Calendar) is a term derived from Latin, known as a system of measuring time. Calendars are often used to represent time cycles, the main and most common unit of measurement is the day. In addition, depending on the type of calendar, they are also used to mark important events and milestones by week, month, quarter and year. Calendars have now become an indispensable daily measure, produced in the form of paper calendars, electronic calendars and calendars on modern technological devices.

The calendar will also let viewers know how many weeks there are in a year, as well as the detailed lunar calendar. Every year a new calendar will be released, showing you the detailed day, month, and year of that year. For example, by looking at the calendar, you will know what day it is today, what week it is in the month, and what the solar and lunar calendars are today. Currently, the types of calendars in Vietnam that are provided to the market also show the holidays according to the State’s regulations (usually highlighted in red on the calendar).

However, if you want to know the number of weeks in a year, you cannot spend too much time counting and adding up the total number of weeks in 12 months on the calendar. There is an extremely fast and more accurate calculation method that calendar viewers may not know. This calculation method is commonly applied and highly scientific, you just need to remember a few small tips to be able to fully understand it.

**How to calculate how many weeks and quarters are in a year**

To calculate the number of weeks in a year, you need to understand the time conventions in a year. A year is a unit of time, understood as a cycle of the Earth rotating around the Sun. This cycle occurs continuously, the time to complete one orbit lasts about 365 days (plus a few hours depending on the year). Thus, it can be understood that 1 year will have 365 days if that year is not a leap year and 366 days if that year is a leap year.

Also according to the international standard convention on time, 1 week has 7 days. So to calculate the number of weeks in a year, you just need to take the total number of days in a year and divide it by 7.

**Number of weeks/year = Total number of days/year ÷ 7 **(The integer part of the received quotient is the number of weeks)

In summary, we will usually get the following result for calculating how many weeks there are in a year:

- A leap year has 366 days, equivalent to 52 weeks and 2 days extra.
- A non-leap year has 365 days, equivalent to 52 weeks and 1 day extra.

Similar to the calculation of the number of quarters in a year, by convention, a quarter will consist of 3 months. Meanwhile, a year has a total of 12 months. So normally, you will calculate that a year has a total of 12/3=4 quarters. You can remember that each quarter corresponds to 4 seasons: spring, summer, fall, winter.

- Quarter I: From January to March
- Quarter II: April to June
- Quarter III: From July to September
- Quarter IV: October to December

**2024 Calendar Details**

So, you know how to calculate how many weeks and quarters there are in a year. From now on, readers can completely apply the above formula to all years, as long as you know the total number of days in that year and the international standard time conventions such as the number of days in a week, the number of months in a quarter. It can be seen that the year 2023 has passed, giving way to the brilliant new year 2024. Besides, 2024 is also a very special year when it starts on the first day of the week, which is the 1st of the solar calendar on Monday. This is also a leap year after a 4-year cycle, so the number of weeks, days, quarters and hours will change compared to normal years.

**Total number of days and quarters in 2024**

A leap year will have 366 days, 1 day more than a normal year. The conventional cycle is 4 years will have 1 leap year. Normally, to know if that year is a leap year or not, people will take the year number and divide it by 4. If the year number is divisible by 4, it is a leap year, for example 2016, 2020… There are also special cases such as the years of the turn of the century (including two 00s in the year). If this full century year is divisible by 400, it is a leap year. Thus, according to the above calculation, we can see that 2024 is a leap year, with February including 29 days.

The number of quarters in a year will not change because a year, whether it is a leap year or not, still consists of 12 months. Therefore, 2024 will have a total of 4 quarters, similar to other years. The order of the quarters and months in the quarter will remain the same. Viewers can rely on the number of seasons in the year to remember and calculate the quarter more accurately.

**How many weeks are there in a year 2024?**

So, you have clearly understood that 2024 is a leap year, with a total of 366 days. According to the calculation mentioned above, this year will have 52 weeks and 2 days left. In which, the first day of the new year will start on Monday, and the last day of 2024 will fall on Tuesday. There are many ways to calculate the start and end of the week, and they are applied in different countries. In which, the most popular will be the following 3 main calculation methods:

- The new week starts on Monday and ends on Sunday. This is a widely used method of calculation, which can be found in many European and Southeast Asian countries, including Vietnam.
- The new week starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday. This calculation is also quite reasonable and is most widely applied in developed countries such as the US, China, Japan, South America, Korea, Canada, etc.
- The new week starts on Saturday and ends on Friday. This way of calculating is probably unfamiliar to many people and sounds unscientific, but it is widely applied and deployed in Middle Eastern and African countries.

The way to calculate 1 week is different in different regions but it will not affect the result of calculating how many weeks there are in a year. Therefore, you can still apply the formulas to calculate the number of weeks anywhere, anytime.

**How many hours are there in 2024?**

There are many ways to calculate hours in a year, depending on the habits and time conventions that the person remembers. According to the standard, 1 hour will be counted as 60 minutes, equal to one rotation of the minute hand on the clock. In addition, 1 day will include 24 hours, equal to 2 rotations of the hour hand on the clock. At this time, to calculate the number of hours in 2024, you just need to take the number of hours in 1 day and multiply it by the total number of days in the year.

We have the following time calculation formulas:

- Number of hours in 2024 = 366 days x 24 hours = 8,784 hours
- Number of hours in 2024 = (52 weeks x 7 days + 2 days) x 24 hours = 8,784 hours

The second method is applied when you already know how many weeks there are in a year. Although it seems more complicated, with small multiplication, you can calculate more easily than with large multiplication. In general, depending on the calculation situation and memory habits, viewers can choose the most convenient and suitable calculation method.
