What are the only possible days of the week that the 18th of the month could have been? Does anyone know how to do this with working? Do you need to use algebra?

Thus there must have been 3 Tuesdays that fell on odd dates. we can get away with this with the first Tuesday being either the 1st or the 3rd since months have no more than 31 days. The 18th appears on friday if the the 1st is a tuesday, and on wednesday if the 3rd is a tuesday. Thanks from Student2018
