Word Problem Wednesday: In Celebration of Leap Day!

Mar 2, 2016

Leap Day 2016 was this week, on Monday, February 29! On this Word Problem Wednesday, give our leap year-themed word problem a try; we'll update with the answer tomorrow.

2016 is a leap year! Every 4 years, there is an extra day at the end of February, known as Leap Day. How many days passed from January 1, 2000, through Leap Day 2016?

Update: Here's the solution!

There have been 16 whole years and 2 months since January 1, 2000. That’s 365 days × 16 = 5,840 days, plus the 4 Leap Days from 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012, plus the first 60 days of 2016. So, there have been 5,840 + 4 + 60 = 5,904 days since the first day of the 21st century.
