Olivia has drawn balloons on her birthday on the calendar. What day is her birthday? What is the date of her birthday?

We know which is Olivia’s birthday on the calendar because she’s drawn balloons on the day. The question asks us, first of all, what day is Olivia’s birthday? These are the days on the calendar. All of these dates fall on a Monday. All of the dates in the second column fall on a Tuesday. Olivia’s birthday is in this column, so Olivia’s birthday must be on a Tuesday. So, the answer to the first part of the question is Tuesday. Olivia’s birthday is on a Tuesday.

Now, we need to work out the date of her birthday. Olivia has drawn her balloons on the number which says four. And, if we look closely at the very top of the calendar, we can see that the month is February. So, the date of Olivia’s birthday is February four.
