A leap year has 366 days (the extra day is the 29th of February), and it comes after every four years. To check if a year is a leap year, divide the year by 4. If it is fully divisible by 4, it is a leap year. For example, the year 2016 is divisible 4, so it is a leap year, whereas, 2015 is not.

However, Century years like 300, 700, 1900, 2000 need to be divided by 400 to check whether they are leap years or not.
