Write a C program to check whether a entered year is a leap year or not. In this tutorial, we are going to write a code which take a year as an input and print whether a input year is a leap year or not.

####

A Leap year is a year which has 366 days, it means it has one additional day. Each leap year has 366 days instead of the usual 365 days.

i) If a year is divisible by 4 and not divisible by 100 then it's a leap year. For example - 2012, 2008 etc.

ii) If a century year (1200, 1600) is divisible by 400 then it's a leap year. For example - 1200, 1600 etc.

We have discussed what is leap and algorithm to check leap year. Let's write a code which takes an input (year) and check whether a input year is a leap year or not.

Another way of writing above program.

C program to check whether a number is Palindrome or not

In this programming example, let's create a function which checks whether an input year is leap year or not.

Enter a year : 2008

2008 is a leap year

**What is Leap Year?**

A Leap year is a year which has 366 days, it means it has one additional day. Each leap year has 366 days instead of the usual 365 days.

### Algorithm to Check Leap Year

i) If a year is divisible by 4 and not divisible by 100 then it's a leap year. For example - 2012, 2008 etc.

ii) If a century year (1200, 1600) is divisible by 400 then it's a leap year. For example - 1200, 1600 etc.

## C Program to Check Leap Year using Conditional Operator

We have discussed what is leap and algorithm to check leap year. Let's write a code which takes an input (year) and check whether a input year is a leap year or not.

#include <stdio.h> int main(void) { int year; printf("Enter a year\n"); scanf("%d",&year); /* Leap is divisible by 4 but not by 100 or it is divisible by 400 */ if( ( (year%4 == 0) && (year%100!=0) ) || (year%400==0) ) { printf("%d is a leap year.", year ); } else { printf("%d is not a leap year.", year); } return 0; }

Another way of writing above program.

C program to check whether a number is Palindrome or not

#include <stdio.h> int main(void) { int year; printf("Enter a year \n"); scanf("%d",&year); /* Check whether a entered year is divisible by 4 */ if(year%4 == 0) { /* For century year such as 500,1200 etc */ if( year%100 == 0) { /* If it's divisible by 400 then it's a leap year */ if ( year % 400 == 0) { printf("%d is a leap year.", year); } else { printf("%d is not a leap year.", year); } } else printf("%d is a leap year.", year ); } else { printf("%d is not a leap year.", year); } return 0; }

## C Program to Check Leap Year using Function

In this programming example, let's create a function which checks whether an input year is leap year or not.

#include <stdio.h> bool checkLeapYear(int year) { /* Leap is divisible by 4 but not by 100 or it is divisible by 400 */ if( ( (year%4 == 0) && (year%100!=0) ) || (year%400==0) ) { return true; } else { return false; } } int main(void) { int year; printf("Enter a year\n"); scanf("%d", &year); if( checkLeapYear(year) ) { printf(" %d is a leap year.", year ); } else { printf("%d is not a leap year.", year); } return 0; }

**Output:**

Enter a year : 2008

2008 is a leap year
