How many midnights are there in a calandar week (seven days).
Ok then, on what day does midnigth fall.
Please explain the logic.
There are definatly seven, even if you can't decide which day or starts, or what day the week starts
I would call midnight the first minute of a day myself
Aggreed. It can only be on one day or the other. Not both.
It's like saying ... "What was the last year that new years day and christmas day where in the same year?"
I am quite sure Dave will say the answer is eight. Sunday 0.00 is definitily midnight, seven days later sunday 24.00 is midnight, too. So there are 8 midnights in a week.
Then the next week there would only be six.
There really isn't any "24:00" There is a 23:59...then 0:00
I definitily know that it is here 5:19 am, not the very best time for complicated logical questions, but I was just thinking that perhaps six may be the right answer. If you define midnight as the turn from one day to another this would be six in a week.
Go to bed yoyo.
There are 7 days in a week, so the day must start (midnight) 7 times, so there are 7 midnights in a week.
might seem strange, but here in Japan, there are only five midnights each week! I thought it was odd when I first got here, but I'm getting used to it now.
Ok, now you've confused me mavis
Dave - don't want to ruin your fun - but just to remind ya -look here .
SInce I have been there and done that - I will stay out of this discussion this time!
Me,too. Can you explain? I thought it would be possible to construct logical answers for anything between six and eight, but five???
and how does that work?
Don't spoil the thinking process this is more important than the answers. Are you also damyanke somewhere else?
Yes, I do go by "damnyankee" somewhere else! I go by that where Allan is an administrator.
