This age calculator calculates the exact age of a person or a thing on any particular day based on the birthdate. 

With this tool, you can also figure out the interval between the two dates.

Age is counted differently in various cultures of the World. Today, the Gregorian calendar is most commonly used to calculate age. It considers the age of newborns as a zero and after one year the age becomes one. 

But in many cultures like in East Asia, and China the age reckoning is different. The age of the newborn depends upon the new year. It makes the difference of approximately one or two years in the ages between the West and East systems. But don’t fret! you can use our lunar age calculator for Eastern counting systems. This tool is specifically designed to calculate the age of a person according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar. 

How To Calculate How Old Am I?

The method of age calculation requires a comparison of a person's birthdate with the date upon which you want to calculate the age.

To calculate how old you are:

Note down the date of birth, and current date and subtract both of these dates.

Now here, the complexity is introduced when different dates are to be dealt with!

Subtract the Number of Days:

  • Subtract days in the current date and birth date
  • If days in the current date are greater, proceed with subtraction
  • If days in the current date are smaller, subtract 1 month from the current year's months and add 30.5 to them
  • Now subtract the birthdays from the current year's days

Subtract the Number of Months:

  • Follow the same procedure as mentioned for day calculations. Remember that if you want to carry 1 year, add 12 months to the current year months

Subtract the Number of Years:

  • Simply subtract your birth year from the running year

Running short on time and needing to find the age of a particular person, get assistance from the age calculator online. It allows you to conveniently calculate the age of someone without manually counting the years, months, and days. 

Example:

The date of birth of John is July 26, 1985. Now how to find his age on January 29, 2024

Solution:

Age of a Person = Given date - Date of birth.

Ron's Date of Birth = July 26, 1985.

Given date = January 29, 2024.

Now the current month < birth month. So consider 2024 - 1 = 2023 as the current year and 

also do 12 + 1 (Jan) - 7 (July) = 6 months

Years' Difference = 2024 - 1985 = 39 years

Number of remaining days = 3 days

The age of John is 39 years, 6 months, and 3 days
