, the fourteen types of year (seven common, seven leap) repeat in a 400-year cycle (20871 weeks). Forty-three common years per cycle or exactly 10.75% start on a Friday. The 28-year sub-cycle only spans across century years divisible by 400, e.g. 1600, 2000, and 2400. 400 year cycle century 1: 010, 021, 027, 038, 049, 055, 066, 077, 083, 094, 100 century 2: 106, 117, 123, 134, 145, 151, 162, 173, 179, 190 century 3: 202, 213, 219, 230, 241, 247, 258, 269, 275, 286, 297 century 4: 309, 315, 326, 337, 343, 354, 365, 371, 382, 393, 399


Julian Calendar

In the now-obsolete Julian calendar, the fourteen types of year (seven common, seven leap) repeat in a 28-year cycle (1461 weeks). This sequence occurs exactly once within a cycle, and every common letter thrice. As the Julian calendar repeats after 28 years that means it will also repeat after 700 years, i.e. 25 cycles. The year's position in the cycle is given by the formula ((year + 8) mod 28) + 1). Years 4, 15 and 26 of the cycle are common years beginning on Friday. 2017 is year 10 of the cycle. Approximately 10.71% of all years are common years beginning on Friday.
