A temple was built in 50 BC and burnt down 75 years later. In what year did it burn down?
26 AD. There was no year 0. that is the answer according to the online quiz that i answered
haha, nice there was no year 0 AD
ah I see
but i can't still understand why
i smelt the trap, so waited for another to fall in it X)
please explain further why it is the answer ^_^
BC is before Christ AD is a latin phrase which means In the year of our Lord well when Christ was born, it began the 1st " year of our Lord" year 1, thus no year 0
-50 -49 ... -1, 1, ... , 26. ^ first year you've to count so it's 49 + 26 = 75 years after
formula?? i dont know, add 1 i guess
no, i am referring to the solution
well like Reku said 75 - 50+1 = 26 If the BC year is B, AD year is A, and n is num of years between -> A = (n - B+1)
