  1. 7 days later it is the same day again, so it is convenient to use a number system in which 7 = 0. It turns out that such a system exists. You can do addition and multiplication in the usual way and put 7 = 0 without any contradictions.

    A year later it is 365 days later if the year is not a leap year and 366 days later otherwise.

    You can compute which day it is 365 days later as follows by by identifying 7 with zero:

    10 = 10 - 0 = 10 - 7 = 3

    square both sides of 10 = 3:

    100 = 9 = 9 - 0 = 9 - 7 = 2

    multiply both sides by 3:

    300 = 6 = -1

    now 63 = 9*7 = 0, so:

    363 = -1

    add 2 to both sides:

    365 = 1

    So, 365 days later is the same day of the week as it is 1 day later. In case of a leap year it will be 2 days later.

    1968 was a leap year, so Januari 1 1969 was a wednesday. If you go another year forward you move one day forward, etc. until you arrive at 1972. When you go to 1973 you have to add 2 days because 1972 was a leap year.

    So, you just add the total number of days you move if you move forward from one Newyearsday to the next until the sum becomes 7:

    2 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 2 = 7 -->

    1973 is a year on which Januari 1 falls on a monday.

  2. Why should there only be three other years starting with Monday, besides 1968? Do you mean since then?

    Three such years are 1973, 1979 and 1990. You can find others using
