Find the day of the week on 26 january 1950

We know that,

Odd days implies that days more than complete weeks

So the number of odd days in 400,800,1200,1600, 2000 years are 0

Hence, the number of odd days in the first 1600 years are 0.

Number of odd days in the upcoming next 300 years = 1

Number of odd days in 49 years = (12 x 2 + 37 x 1) = 61 days = 5 odd days

Total number of odd days in 1949 years = 1 + 5 = 6 odd days

Now look at the year 1950

Jan 26 = 26 days = 3 weeks + 5 days = 5 odd days

Total number of odd days = 6 + 5 = 11 => 4 odd days

Odd days :-

0 = sunday ;

1 = monday ;

2 = tuesday ;

3 = wednesday ;

4 = thursday ;

5 = friday ;

6 = saturday

Therefore, Jan 26th 1950 was Thursday.
