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.
