### How often is one calendar year identical with another?

It is either every 6th, 11th or 28th year, depending on how
adding an extra day in a leap year affects it. Without leap years,
a calendar would always repeat every 7th year. If in a 7 year
period there is one leap year then one day will be skipped, so the
next repeat comes around in 6 years. So if you take from 2013 to
2019 inclusive, 2016 is the only leap year of those 7 years. 2013
and 2019 have identical calendars. The pattern is that a leap year
repeats its calendar every 28 years. The year after a leap year
repeats in 6 years. Two years after a leap year, which is also two
years before a leap year, repeats every 11 years and 3 years after
a leap year, which is also one year before a leap year, repeats
every 11 years. 2012, a leap year, will repeat in 2040. 2013, a
year after a leap year, repeats in 6 years, in 2019. 2014, two
years after/before a leap year repeats 11 years later in 2025 and
2015, a year before a leap year will repeat 11 years later in 2026.
2013 and 2019 are repeats, but 2014 and 2020 aren't, because unlike
2014, 2020 is a leap year. If a leap year causes a day to be
skipped, then it will come around again in the next cycle, so then
you get an 11 year gap. A leap year itself is repeated every 28
years.

### What years will be leap years?

To determine if a year in the Gregorian calendar is a leap year,
divide it by 4. Years that are not evenly divisible by 4, like 2015
and 2017, are not leap years. However, not all years that are
evenly divisible by 4 are leap years. If a year is evenly divisible
by 100, it is a leap year only if it is also evenly divisible by
400. So 1900 and 2100 are not leap years because they are evenly
divisible by 100 but not evenly divisible by 400, and 2000 and 2400
are leap years because they are evenly divisible by 400.

### What number must a year be divisble by to qualify as a leap year?

To find out if any year is a leap year there are two factors you
have to take into account.
Firstly the last two digits of the date are divisible by 4.
1976 was a leap year (76/4=19)
1978 was not a leap year (78/4=19.5)
1980 was a leap year
1984 was a leap year
1994 was not leap year
2010 is not leap year
2012 will be a leap year
Secondly you have to take into account century years.
If the last two digits are 00 then you see if the 1st 2 digits
are divisible by 4.
1600 was a leap year (16/4=4)
1800 was not a leap year (18/4=4.5)
2000 was a leap year
2100 will not be a leap year
