    after

    Hello,

    1. 7 days after 27-August.

    I have to find out the date 7 days after 27-August.

    My doubt is that while counting the date shall I count from 27-August?

    Shall I start from 28-August?

    2. 5 days before 29-November

    shall I start with 28-November?

    Thanks.

    Just think of the simplest example, and work from there.

    If you say 1 day after the 27th of August you wouldn’t include the 27th (since its after and not including). So one day after would be the 28th

    if you say 1 day before the 28th of November, you wouldn’t include the 28th of November (since its before)
