When you ask: How many weeks in a year?
Here is a small series of posts that cover the most asked questions on Google. Most of these questions won’t be answered here. However, I might, for fun, give an answer if I personally know it. It’s mostly to have fun with why people ask so many questions.
Considering that the answer to this question is, for me, a fixed value that doesn’t change in time, you may think that a software could use a constant, that is, a fixed value, without needing to ask Google. However, if it is humans who are asking Google this question, please, why?
Our current calendar has 52 weeks. If you really want a precise answer, I refer you to the ISO numbering system which, I must say, has found a way to make sense (okay, it works, but at what intellectual cost?) in a system that may not make sense anymore. Once again, we do with what we have. There have been proposals to reform the calendar, but this is more of an intellectual exercise than anything else. Many computer systems would have to be redesigned before being able to move to a new configuration.
I’ll leave you with this rule of thumb about the relationship between your hourly and annual salary. To quickly compare the two, simply multiply the former by two and then by a thousand. Considering that we get paid an average of 2000 hours per year, this is an easy rule to remember, but especially to apply.
