What if you only counted weekdays?

If you are trying to see what day falls on the exact date difference of 2493 weekdays before Mar 19, 2023, you can count up each day skipping Saturdays and Sundays.

To get exactly two thousand four hundred ninety three weekdays before Mar 19, 2023, you actually need to count 3490 total days (including weekend days). That means that 2493 weekdays before Mar 19, 2023 would be August 28, 2013.
