# A simple method to find whether a year is a leap year or not

In a leap year, there must be 366 days instead of 365. In a leap year, there is 1 extra day in the month of February. It occurs after every four years. But it is quite difficult to know which is or will be a leap year. Today, we will tell you and make you understand how knowing a year you have in your mind is a leap year or not. We will tell you a simple method to find whether a year is a leap year or not.

## How to find out whether a year is a leap year or not?

To find whether a year is a leap year or not just follow the following steps:

1. Take any year randomly

2. Then divide that year by 4

3. If that year is divisible by 4 then that is a leap year or else it is not.

## An Example of determining whether a year is a leap year or not:

Example 1:

Find 2020 is a leap year or not?

Sol:

→ 2020 ÷4

→ 505 Ans

→ So, 2020 is a leap year.

Example 2:

Find 2018 is a leap year or not?

Sol:

→ 2018 ÷4

→ 505 Ans

→ So, 2020 is a leap year.

→ 504.5 Ans

→ Hence, 2018 is not a leap year.
