Averiguar el día de la semana de tu nacimiento.

Seguro que te han contado cosas del día en el que naciste, pero tal vez no sepas qué día de la semana era. No es difícil averiguarlo, aunque debes tener en cuenta que febrero es un mes especial y su número de días varía cada año.
Febrero suele tener 28 días, pero si el año es bisiesto tiene 29. Para saber si un año es bisiesto lo dividimos entre 4 y si la división es exacta, entonces es bisiesto, pero si acaba en dos ceros, también tiene que ser exacta su división entre 400.

Para hallar qué día de la semana fue el 6 de febrero de 2004:
Calcula los días que han pasado desde el comienzo del año: 37 días (31 + 6).

Resta 1 al año de la fecha, divide entre 4 y anota el cociente:
2.004 – 1 = 2.003 y 2.003 : 4 Cociente: 500.

Suma al año de la fecha los días que han pasado del año y el cociente anterior:
2.004 + 37 + 500 = 2.541

Divide el resultado entre 7 y busca el resto en esta tabla:

2.541 : 7 -> Cociente: 363 y resto 0. 

  • Como el resto es 0, el 6 de febrero de 2004 fue viernes.

Truco para averiguar la fecha de nacimiento.

Dile a la persona que participe en tu juego que:

escriba el número del día de nacimiento; 29 (es el día en que yo nací)

que lo multiplique por 100: 29 x 100 = 2.900

que le sume el mes en que nació: 2.900 + 3 (es el mes en que yo nací) = 2.903

que lo vuelva a multiplicar por 100: 2.903 x 100 = 290.300

y ahora que sume las dos últimas cifras del año de nacimiento: 290.300 + 89 (nací en 1989) = 290.389. 

que lo multiplique por 10: 290.389 x 10 = 2.903.890

que le sume el año del descubrimiento de América: 2.903.890 + 1.492 = 2.905.382

y que lo divida entre 2: 2.905.382 : 2 = 1.452.691 

Después de esto, pídele el resultado. Resta al número que te haya dado 746 y divídelo entre 5.

1.452.691 – 746 = 1.451.945

1.451.945 : 5 = 290.389

Si el resultado es par como el que nos ha dado a nosotros, las dos primeras cifras serán el día de nacimiento (29), las dos siguientes el mes (03) y las dos últimas el año (89). Si el resultado es impar, la primera cifra será el día de nacimiento, las dos siguientes el mes, y las dos siguientes el año.

    I noticed last summer walking around Atlanta that the city had installed “Stop” for pedestrian signs in the crosswalks, with a little stop sign rather than yield sign. I also know from the experience of my family members down there that there was increased enforcement of the yield to pedestrian law, in fact my brother got a stiff ticket for it. From my experience of walking several miles around the city of Atlanta, pretty much the paragon of American sprawl, I’d say the signs and enforcement had an effect. I was amazed at how often cars yielded to me in crosswalks.

    Maybe Lamar was given Kobe’s 3pt workout that Trevor left when he went to Houston Lineups are lineups and although giddy, I won’t admit it until I see them play. I’ve been disappointed by so many theoretically awesome lineups that it’s just natural for me to be a bit reserved.One thing I think that may be granted this season is a full, growing Bynum. If he can play defense like Pau did (wow, did I actually type that?) I won’t care if Ron has lost a step or two.… but i do wish that he won’t lose his mind.

    Lovely sandals. I’m afraid I’m a flip-flop-aholic. I live in them from May through to October, unless the weather is horrible. I have around 10 pairs in various colours and with various beading, sequins, patterns, etc.Hope your daughter has had a fabulous time. x

    The next stage is epidemics. That's being reported now, but of course this is the white media and they're devils, so don't trust them when they talk about infections started to take hold. Can't be true.In any case, I'm sure the Africans who are rushing aid to Haiti have this under control. No room for the United States. Damn the white devils and their white devil water, food, and medicine. Plagues on the earth, they are.

    Bloom, vos commentaires sur la pointe ardennaise m’intéressent toujours. C’est un endroit que je connais bien et que j’ai aimé avec passion, (il faut dire : « j’ai aimé, c’est un effet du temps), notamment le village dont vous parlez, mais je l’ai abordé dans de toutes autres conditions. Il y a longtemps. Je ne sais pas ce que j’en penserais aujourd’hui.

    Trust is relative. Sometimes there is an open arrangement, so no one really has to feel violated if an affair happens. If that’s the case, then why would it be difficult to keep the relationship going? On the other hand, if one person wants monogamy and the other doesn’t, then that would be a problem. Best to know the other’s point of view before starting something that may lead to an ongoing thing. Some people just get bored and want sex. Thats ok, if it ok with all concerned.

    I’m planning to do just the opposite. Once the prices come down, I’m looking to buy somewhere more in the country east of the metro. The trick will be finding a place that will still allow me a modest commute to the ‘burbs for work. I’m sure there would be perks livng downtown, but I’d rather have space and quiet. I lived in apartments for 12 years. I’d rather not buy one. – Rate this comment: 0  0

    Hello Sarah,I made your lentil salad last week and it was just great!In general, I love mixing ingredients that might at first sight seem a little exotic together, that´s why this salad absolutely suits my taste. I hadn´t thought that all the spices in the dressing work soo well together.And congratulations to your great blog, I will get further inspiration here (and information).Best regards,Sarah

    I visited my local Radio Shack store today with intent to buy two Blackout Buddies to get the third BB free. However, RS wouldn’t honor this promotion as it’s been advertised in your video; the store will not provide a free BB unless I purchase one of the ARC radios. Also, when I attempt to purchase three BB from the RS website, there is no mention of a ‘buy 2, get 1 free’ offer during checkout.

    I know exactly what Maddie is going to do. Run away crying, fall into the arms of the first guy she sees (presumably an attractive bald man from Chicago who’s a big fan of Brooke), and the two fall instantly in love – and make with the whoopie right there in the hallway!I just wrote your next 3 pages, buddy.

    JimApril 2, 2010You may want to consider inviting other authors who may already have established reputations in the food and beverage niche and invite them to contribute to your site. You can use press releases and others who are already “known” in that niche to get off to a really fast start.

    You probably misunderstood what I was asking. Of course everything is designed, because it was chosen to be one way or another. My question was why one company decided to make a set of choices and designs in one way for one game and make another set of choices and designs in another way for another; others have put some light to the answer.

I think I will go with the X230 because as a student you get it cheaper and I have a comfortable docking station to connect everything easily.Do you know another good notebook with an IPS Panel and a higher resolution than 1366 x 768 with a 12″ till 14″ display?best regards and have a nice weekend!

    Es muy útil vuestra ayuda, pero aún tengo dudas porque no sabemos qué pack coger, quiero una web sencilla pero profesional a la vez y no me gustaría tener límites en cuanto a textos, fotos, vídeos o u otros complementos de la web, como pueden ser entradas animadas, o fondos en movimiento y cosas así. No sé si me explico; igualmente me ha sido de gran ayuda vuestra respuesta, empezaremos cuanto antes con 1&1 y ya me pasaré por aquí a contaros que tal nos va gracias.un saludo.
