There are 261 weekdays in a year.

If you take out the weekend days then there are 5 weekdays per week or around 20 weekdays per month.

So if you take that and multiply it by 12 months then you would have 240 weekdays in a year but there's actually a bit more weekdays in a year than 240 days.

In a year there are actually 261 weekdays in a year.

Also there are 52 weeks in every year.

Actually though we have 52 weeks and 1 day in every year which equals the 365 days we have in the year.

Well if you count the weeks in a month and multiply that by 12 months you would get 48 weeks instead of 52 weeks in a year.

However the actual weeks in a month do vary even though it seems that there are 4 weeks in every month which is not really true.

So we do have 52 weeks in a year and usually yes every year should have 52 weeks.

I used to think that we did actually only have 48 weeks in a year but I was told different by a friend who is a teacher.

I then studied up on it myself and yes there are 52 weeks in a year.

Because if you take 7 days which equals a week and multiply that by 48 weeks then you would get only 336 days.

But if you take 7 days and multiply that by 52 weeks then you would get 364 days but we do have one day over just 52 weeks in a year.

So we actually have 52 weeks and 1 day in a year.
