waht materials could upumuse

I really wondered why you just didn't pick up a calendar and work the problem yourself.
"What day would yesterday be if Wednesday was five days before the day after tomorrow?"
To figure yesterday it might help to know today.
Wednesday appears to be the key to this problem.
The day after tomorrow is two days from now. Wednesday was five days before that, therefore it was three days ago. Therefore today is Saturday and yesterday was Friday.
Verify my reasoning. These ones are easy to mess up.
