    Lightbulb Formula needed: 'Noon of the Week'

    We were trying to figure this out:

    If a 7-day week were represented by one day, when (in the week) would noon of that day be? In other words, when could you say that 'noon of the week' is exactly (day and time)?

    We were thinking Wednesday at noon would be 'noon of the week' but that is wrong.

    How do you calculate this -- what is the formula?

    Noon occurs at mid-day.
    Saying that noon occurs at Wednesday is not very correct. Not precise enough.

    In 7 days (a week), there are 7x24=168 hours. So noon will be at the beginning of the 168/2=84th hour of the week.

    84=3x24+12
    That is to say Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday fully passed, since it is 3 times 24 hours !
    So it's Thursday at 12pm.

    hang on, does that make sense?

    Do you mean Thursday at 12pm?

    You did mention that Tuesday would have passed.... or am I just confusing myself?
