For the following two sentences:

Michiko at hamburgers on Friday. She ate hamburgers on Saturday, too.

Is this how I would write it?

みちこさんは金曜日にハンバーガーを食べました。
土曜日にもハンバーガーを食べました。

I'm pretty sure I can leave off the ハーンバーガを part, but I want to make sure I understand where も goes in the second sentence.

Am I close?

EDIT: Added in the に before the も

Fantt-san,

Yes, you're very, very close! 👍

土曜日もハンバーガーを食べました。

Delete "ni," correct your typo "t" to た and change ハーンバーガ to ハンバーガー

These foreign language borrowings converted into katakana will become easier to write for you as you get accustomed to how the Japanese speak. 😅

Epigene-san,

ありがとう!

I edited the changes above. Are they correct now?

It would be ok for the second sentence to just be:

土曜日にも食べました。

Right?

Could you just say,

土曜日にも

and be understood, or is that too short?

and be understood, or is that too short?
Yes, 窶忱窶破窶愿コ窶堙俄?堙?ツ食窶堙冷?堙懌?堋オ窶堋スツ。is OK. (Since the sentence is not strictly formal, "ni" is not always necessary. If you're a stickler with grammar, use "ni" by all means. 😌 )

窶忱窶破窶愿コ窶堙俄?堙? will certainly be understood, but it's not natural Japanese. I'd say:
窶忱窶破窶愿コツ(窶堙可)窶堙?窶堙仰。
窶忱窶破窶堙?窶堙仰。ツ(窶愿コ can be omitted when referring to the days of the week, such as ナ椎ス窶破ツ、窶ーテ寂?破)
But in formal speech, use 窶忱窶破窶愿コ窶堙俄?堙?ツ食窶堙冷?堙懌?堋オ窶堋スツ。

HTH!

Ah I wanted to say you could also use も in place of を。 :p
Another example is using it too state agreement.

Aさん: 私はハンバーガを食べたいよ。
Bさん: あぁ、私も食べたい。
A: I want to eat a hamburger.
B: Ooh, I do too. (I also want to eat one.)
