Calculation [ edit ]
The template then gives j , the day of the month, as caclulated by the following formulae.
j = 7×n − 6 + (w − w_{1} ) mod 7 (for positive n )
j = t + 7×(n + 1) − (w_{t} − w ) mod 7 (for negative n )
Where t is the last day of the month, w_{t} is the ISO weekday number of the last day of the month, w_{1} is the ISO weekday number of the first day of the month and n and w are as defined above.
