Would love to see your comments with the date you think is the answer, and a clue about how you got there. (Don't use a calendar. It's more fun.)
So, then I did a little research about January itself and made up the following problem for my other classes the next day. You can click on Numa P's name to learn more about the 2nd king of Rome below.
Numa Pompilius reigned 715–673 BC was the legendary second king of Rome, who reigned from 715-673 BC, succeeding Romulus. Many of Rome's most important religious and political institutions are attributed to him. In fact, King Pompilius gave January and February their names. January was named after Janus, the god of beginnings and endings.
There is a folktale that King Pompilius liked the name January so much, he decided not to have any other month names. The whole year would be called January. So, what we think of as February 1st would have been called January 32. If the folktale came true and King Pompilius had his way, think about January 80th, 2016.
a. What month and day would that be on our calendars?
b. What day of the week is it?
