2000 was a leap year because 2000 is evenly divisible by 100 AND evenly divisible by 400.

1900 and 2100 are NOT leap years because, although they are evenly divisible by 4, they are also evenly divisible by 100 but NOT evenly divisible by 400.

Examples:

2010 - regular year

2040 - leap year

2070 - regular year

2100 - regular year

The year 2000 was a leap year. Every 100 years is not be leap year even if it is divisible by four, except for every 400 years. As the year 2000 was divisible by 400, it was a leap year, though 1900 was not and 2100 will not be, as they are not divisible by 400.

1999 was the only year between 1998 and 2000, and it was not a leap year.

Yes, 2000 is a leap year because the year is divisible by 4. Century years also need to be divisible by 400 to be leap years, so 2000 qualifies here too.

The first leap year after 1996 was 2000. The first one after 2010 is 2012.

The year 2000 was a leap year, so the use of a 2000 calendar is limited to leap years. Which are.... 2000, 2028, 2056, 2084.

Yes. Leap years come in every year that is divisible by 4, except years that are divisible by 100. So 1900 was not a leap year, and 2100 won't be. But there is a second "Except"; years that are divisble by 400 ARE leap years. So 2000 was a leap year. Also a leap year is always on the year of the olympic games.

Normally, but there are exceptions. If a year is divisible by 100, but not by 400, then it is not a leap year. 2000 was a leap year, but 1900 was not and 2100 will not be.

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.

Last Leap Year was '2008'. Next Leap Year is '2012'. If any year is divisible by 4 but not divisible by 100, then its a Leap Year. e.g. 2008. OR If any year is divisible by 400, then its a Leap Year. e.g. 2000.

No. The first year of a leap year always ends in a 01, and not 00, as some people think. A year ending in 01 is not divisible by 4, so it can never be a leap year. 2001 was not a leap year for example. If you meant to ask about years ending in 00, like 2000, then they are only leap years if they are divisible by 400. So 1900 and 2100 are not leap years, but 2000 is a leap year.

There were 366 days in the year 2000, not 367. It was a leap year.

A leap year is every 4 years, with the exception of years that can be divided by 100 and cannot be divided by 400. So 1900 was not a leap year, but 2000 was.

No. As a rule of thumb, leap years occur every 4 years. The latest have been in 2000, 2004 and 2008. The precise definition of a leap year is every year that can be divided by 4. Years that can be divided by 100 are not leap years unless they can also be divided by 400. That is why 2000 was a leap year.
