This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 A101312 Number of "Friday the 13ths" in year n (starting at 1901). 7

 OFFSET 1901,1 COMMENTS This sequence is basically periodic with period 28 [example: a(1901) = a(1929) = a(1957)], with "jumps" when it passes a non-leap-year century such as 2100 [all centuries which are not multiples of 400]. At these points [for example, a(2101)], the sequence simply "jumps" to a different point in the same pattern, "dropping back" 12 entries [or equivalently, "skipping ahead" 16 entries], but still continuing with the same repeating [period 28] pattern. Every year has at least 1 "Friday the 13th," and no year has more than 3. On average, 3 of every 7 years (43%) have 1 "Friday the 13th," 3 of every 7 years (43%) have 2 of them and only 1 in 7 years (14%) has 3 of them. Conjecture: The same basic repeating pattern results if we seek the number of "Sunday the 22nds" or "Wednesday the 8ths" or anything else similar, with the only difference being that the sequence starts at a different point in the repeating pattern. a(A190651(n)) = 1; a(A190652(n)) = 2; a(A190653(n)) = 3. - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 16 2011 Periodic with period 2800. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Jul 16 2012 LINKS Reinhard Zumkeller, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1901..3000 J.
