# Arithmetic: year-month-weekday

Source:`R/gregorian-year-month-weekday.R`

`year-month-weekday-arithmetic.Rd`

These are year-month-weekday methods for the arithmetic generics.

Notably, *you cannot add days to a year-month-weekday*. For day-based
arithmetic, first convert to a time point with `as_naive_time()`

or
`as_sys_time()`

.

## Usage

```
# S3 method for clock_year_month_weekday
add_years(x, n, ...)
# S3 method for clock_year_month_weekday
add_quarters(x, n, ...)
# S3 method for clock_year_month_weekday
add_months(x, n, ...)
```

## Arguments

- x
`[clock_year_month_weekday]`

A year-month-weekday vector.

- n
`[integer / clock_duration]`

An integer vector to be converted to a duration, or a duration corresponding to the arithmetic function being used. This corresponds to the number of duration units to add.

`n`

may be negative to subtract units of duration.- ...
These dots are for future extensions and must be empty.

## Details

Adding a single quarter with `add_quarters()`

is equivalent to adding
3 months.

`x`

and `n`

are recycled against each other using
tidyverse recycling rules.

## Examples

```
# 2nd Friday in January, 2019
x <- year_month_weekday(2019, 1, clock_weekdays$friday, 2)
x
#> <year_month_weekday<day>[1]>
#> [1] "2019-01-Fri[2]"
add_months(x, 1:5)
#> <year_month_weekday<day>[5]>
#> [1] "2019-02-Fri[2]" "2019-03-Fri[2]" "2019-04-Fri[2]" "2019-05-Fri[2]"
#> [5] "2019-06-Fri[2]"
# These don't necessarily correspond to the same day of the month
as_year_month_day(add_months(x, 1:5))
#> <year_month_day<day>[5]>
#> [1] "2019-02-08" "2019-03-08" "2019-04-12" "2019-05-10" "2019-06-14"
