The last date of BC was 1 BC, then the first date of AD was 1 AD, there was no zero.

10,000. In BC/BCE you count down to go forward, in AD/CE you count up to go forward.


BC= stands for Befor Christ(count down) AD= stands for nAnno Domini(in the year of the lord) You know when years counted down right? Well that is BC. Then AD is when the years count up. When the abbreviations are the same then subtract(-) if they are different the add(+) 500 BC And 500 AD its 1,000 years! Now do you get it? If you still dont get it.... ASK YOUR TEACHER!


BC means Before Christ. Intead of counting up the years like you do in AD (AD is what we count in now, e.g. 2001, 2002, 2003), you count backwards till you get 0 BC, which is when Christ was born. After 0 BC starts 1 AD then 2 AD etc. So basically, if you started in 2457 BC, and finished 14 years later, you would finish in 2443 BC.


Okay Will AD is older than BC because AD is very old not like BC

BC stands for Before Christ, and AD stands for Anno Domini. BC comes first than AD.


BC : before Christ AD : anno domino


58 years are between 30 BC and AD 30. The first thing you need to remember is that there is no year 0; the year before AD 1 is 1 BC. So the years between 30 BC and AD 30 are... 29 BC, 28 BC, 27 BC, ..., 2 BC, 1 BC, AD1, AD 2, ..., AD 27, AD 28, AD 29 29 BC through 1 BC is 29 years, and AD 1 through AD 29 is 29 years. 29 years + 29 years = 58 years


BC comes before AD on a timeline. BC or BCE means before common era, AD means "In the year of Our Lord."BC first AD after


It isn't a question of closer to ad or bc, it IS bc. 3000bc would be -3000ad.


Nothing. There was no time period between BC and AD. 1 BC was followed by 1 AD. There was no year zero or any gap between BC and AD.

BC is before AD (Before Christ) (After Death)


No, it's the other way around: BC then AD


Ad because bc started after


BC - Before Christ AD - Anno Domini


BC= negative number AD= Positive number


AD - Anno Domini BC - Before Christ


If you're talking about BC and AD, BC has always been refered to as Before Christ. AD has always been refered to as After Death. Both these statements are wrong. Christ Jesus was born around 4 BC and died around 37 AD. AD actually stands for the Latin phrase Anno Domini meaning "in the year of our Lord". I hope this answers your question.Ignoring the question of exactly when Christ was born, the last year BC was 1 BC and the first year AD was AD 1. There is no zero year in either system. The years just go ... 5 BC, 4 BC, 3 BC, 2 BC, 1 BC, AD 1, AD 2, AD 3, AD 4, AD 5 ...Each century AD starts on a 01 year (e.g. 1901) and ends on a 00 year (e.g. 2000), the given example was the beginning and ending of the 20th century. Each century BC starts on a 00 year and ends on a 01 year, as the years count backward.


BC is "before Christ" and AD "anno domini"


AD stands for "anno Domini" BC stands for "before Christ"


ad=after death bc=before christ this is how i remember it


They wont. AD and BC designations are required.


AD followed BC. BC stood for Before Christ, and AD after him (Anno Domini, "year of our lord").Note that this means 1 BC was immediately followed by 1 AD, with no "zero year" between them.
