Yes - the previous multiple of 4, 1900, as a year divisible by 100, would also require to be divisible by 400 in order to be a leap year - which it is not. While 2000 is divisible by 400, 2100, 2200 and 2300 are not, and therefore none of those three will be a leap year.

1900 was also the last year of the 19t century, so 1904 would've been the first leap year ever of the 20th century regardless if 1900 was a leap year or not. Even if 1900 was a triple leap year because it was divisible by 475, anything else would've been ignored by the time 1905 came.

The first leap year of the twentieth century (1901 - 2000) was 1904. The final year of the nineteenth century (1900) was not a leap year, as any century year needs to be divisible not only by 4, but also by 400.

The first leap year after 1899 was 1904.

As the 21st century began in 2001, the first leap year of the 21st century was in 2004.

No. 1904 was a leap year.

2004. The 21st century started in 2001, not in 2000 as some people believe, so 2004 was the first leap year.

2012 was the third leap year in the 21st century. The 21st century started in 2001, not in 2000 as some people believe, so 2004 was the first leap year, 2008 was the second leap year and 2012 was the third leap year.

2013 Actually, the first leap year was 2000, and the second was 2004. The third was 2008. Therefore, the year after the third leap year of this century was really 2009.

There have been 27 leap years since 1900. The first was 1904 the most recent was 2008. The next one is 2012.

Yes! It was a century leap year. Other century leap years are 1600 and 2000. The next one will probably be 2400, and along with another century leap year, 2800, that is true. The next century leap year will occur in 2400. Century leap years always start on a Saturday and the February 29 intercalation in these days is always a Tuesday to being that year.

A leap day on a Monday happens every 28 years. Taking from the start of the 20th century, the years it happened were 1904, 1932, 1960, 1988 and 2016. The next one will be in 2044.

A century is longer than a leap year. A leap year is one year, but a century is 100 years

1904 is divisible by 4. It goes in 476 times.

There were 25 leap years in the 20th century. They were: 1904 1908 1912 1916 1920 1924 1928 1932 1936 1940 1944 1948 1952 1956 1960 1964 1968 1972 1976 1980 1984 1988 1992 1996 2000

The most recent leap year before 2013 was 2012. The last leap year of the 21st century is 2096. The last leap year of the 20th century was 2000.

The years divided by 100 are not leap years unless these are divisible by 400. So 19th century has only 24 leap years but 21st century has 25 as year 2000 was a leap year.

31,536,000 year x 100 = 3,153,600,000 in a century + 25 leap years in a century at 2,160,000 seconds = 3,155,760,000 in a century counting leap days.

yes it will be the 12th leap year for the 21st century

Nope. The first leap year of the 1900s was the year 1904.Every year evenly divisible by 4 is a leap year exceptthe 100's years unless they are also evenly divisible by 400 (e.g. 1600 and 2000).

yes in fact the 19th leap year of the 20th century

If the century year is divisible by four it is not a leap year

It will be one! That is because the century leap years 3200, 3600 and 4000 are along with the other ones.
