# Is 2020 a Leap Year?

A leap year is a year with an extra day in February that is the 29th which is added nearly every four years to the calendar year.

## Answer: Yes, 2020 is a leap year.

**Explanation:**

Here are the rules of leap years:

- A year may be a leap year if it is evenly and exactly divisible by 4.
- Years that are divisible by 100 century years such as 1600 or 2000 cannot be leap years unless they are divisible by 400.

If the above criteria match, then that year is a leap year.
