What is the answer to this question? In how many days of the week does the third letter of the days name immediately follow the first letter of the days name in the alphabet?

Are you serious? Just write down the names of the week... Check the third letter in each and see if it comes after the first letter, according to the alphabet...

(the answer is 3: MoNday... ThUrsday.. SaTurday)

Thats the last time I'm doing your homework for you.. I'm such an enabler lol

Hello cherry bridge

This question just requires proper reading of the statement :

In how many days of the week does the 3' letter of the days name immediately follow the 1' letter of the days name in the alphabet ?
Start with all 7 days of the week, and see which letters appear

Sunday - 3' letter = N ; 1' letter = S ; next letter in alphabet = T
Monday - 3' letter = N ; 1' letter = M ; next letter in alphabet = N
Tuesday - 3' letter = E ; 1' letter = T ; next letter in alphabet = U
Wednesday - 3' letter = D ; 1' letter = W ; next letter in alphabet = X
Thursday - 3' letter = U ; 1' letter = T ; next letter in alphabet = U
Friday - 3' letter = I ; 1' letter = F ; next letter in alphabet = G
Saturday - 3' letter = T ; 1' letter = S ; next letter in alphabet = T
