# Pandas: Calculate one business day from a specified date

## Pandas Time Series: Exercise-27 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to calculate one, two, three business day(s) from a specified date. Also find the next business month end from a specific date.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

``````import pandas as pd
from pandas.tseries.offsets import *
import datetime
from datetime import datetime, date
dt = datetime(2020, 1, 4)
print("Specified date:")
print(dt)
print("\nOne business day from the said date:")
print(obday)
print("\nTwo business days from the said date:")
tbday = dt + 2 * BusinessDay()
print(tbday)
print("\nThree business days from the said date:")
thbday = dt + 3 * BusinessDay()
print(thbday)
print("\nNext business month end from the said date:")
nbday = dt + BMonthEnd()
print(nbday)
``````

Sample Output:

```Specified date:
2020-01-04 00:00:00

One business day from the said date:
2020-01-06 00:00:00

Two business days from the said date:
2020-01-07 00:00:00

Three business days from the said date:
2020-01-08 00:00:00

Next business month end from the said date:
