We people are already aware of the sequence of time on the basis of days, weeks, months, and years. It is really difficult to imagine the continuity of the world’s progress without assuming the entities. There exist 12 months in a year starting from January to December. Every single month has about 4 weeks and every single week of 7 days in total.
There are 30-31 days in a month and February consists of 28-29 days. The normal month day in February is only 28 but the leap year extends the number of days by 1. Finally, it becomes for 29 days. These are the basis sequences upon whom the calculation is going on consistently.
There are 52 weeks approximately every single year. This number obviously increases with a single decimal point during the leap years. There exist different mathematical formulae as well for calculating the total number of weeks in a year. However, it is much difficult to predict with accuracy.

How many weeks are there in a year?
The most common formulae for calculating the above figure is mentioned as under:-
Number of days in a year (365)/ Number of days in a week (7) = 52.14
Let us understand the concept using the following derivative:-
One single year consists of 365 days in total including 52-53 weeks.
When the year is a leap year, it will be 365 days in a year exactly.
One non-leap year = 365 days = 365/7 days per week = 52.143 weeks = 52 weeks+1 day.
The calculation for leap year
It is a well-known fact that one calendar leap year comes after every four years. It even happens except for years that are exactly divisible by 100 and not exactly divisible by 400.
One calendar leap year has 366 days when the total number of days in February is 29.
Finally, 1 leap year = 366 total days = 366/7 days per week = 52.286 weeks = 52 week and 2 days.
It is obvious that the leap year raises the total number of days in every single year by 1. However, it is not regular, and accordingly, we love to remember a total of 365 days every single year.
We use to follow the Gregorian calendar for calculating the leap year sequences. The calendar was introduced several centuries back in the year 1582. It cycles every 400 years.
If the users want to experience a different approach working out the average number of weeks using the calendar, they can find the year works for 365.2425 days. After dividing the figure by 7, it will obviously give us 52.1775 weeks.
The year 2016 was a leap year, the upcoming year 2020 will be a leap year and the year 2024 will also be a leap year. Obviously, there will be 52 weeks + 2 days in all the upcoming leap years. However, the normal years will be of 52 weeks+1 days in total.
That’s all regarding the calculation procedures of the total number of weeks in a year.
