## Weeks in a Year Calculation

**Approximately there are 52 weeks in a year.**

How? There are 365 days in a normal year. A normal year means not a leap year. A leap year has 366 days. Because in leap year February month has 29 days. One week has 7 days.

Therefore, to do the calculation just divide 365 by 7. As a result, you will get **52.143 weeks**. This is the calculation for a normal year. For leap year, divide 366 by 7. The result will be **52.286 weeks**.

So, one year has 52 weeks and 1 day. For a leap year, it is 52 weeks and 2 days.

So, now you got the answer for how many weeks in a year?

Let’s take an example of a calendar or a normal year. Then we will take an example of a leap year.

### For Normal Year

**Example: The year 2015**

It’s not a leap year. Hence, it has total 365 days. So, the number of weeks will be 52 + 1 day.

**Total days = 365**

**Weeks = 365 / 7 = 52 weeks + 1 day**

### For Leap Year

**Example: The year 2016**

It’s a leap year. Therefore, it has 366 days in total. The number of weeks will be 52 + 2 days.

**Total days = 366**

**Weeks = 366 / 7 = 52 weeks + 2 day**

After 2016, the next leap year will be 2020. After one leap year, the next leap year comes every 4 years. So, you can add 4 years with last leap year and get the next upcoming leap year.
