EXAMPLE

In an entire Gregorian Easter cycle, Easter Sunday occurs on March 22 exactly a(1) = 27550 times, so the frequency of occurrence of Easter on March 22 over the entire cycle is calculated simply as 27550/5700000 = 0.0048333..., rounding to 0.483%. (Of course, these frequencies can vary within morelimited time periods.) The van Gent link displays these frequencies as percentages and contains similar information for the Julian calendar.
