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!


Add the two year values together and subtract 1, to allow for the fact that there was no year zero. So from 1 BC to 1 AD is 1 year. 1 + 1 - 1 = 1. From 10 BC to 40 AD is 49. 10 + 40 - 1 = 49.


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


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

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


AD - Anno Domini BC - Before Christ


2017 - 100,000 = -97,983 As there was NO year 0 (as zero hadn't been invented when Dennis the Little renumbered the years in what he/we call 531 AD) 1 BC preceded 1 AD and so subtract an extra year → 100,000 years before 2017 AD is 97,984 BC


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.


BC is used to refer to dates before the birth of Jesus and AD to the dates after His birth Answer BC= Before Christ AD= Anno Domini


i do not know what Ce is but ad is after BC and the higher the number in BC the longer ago, in ad its the exact opposite. e.g. this was made in 2009 AD
