# Why wasn't 2000 a leap year?

## Answer

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

2130 - regular year

2160 - leap year

2190 - regular year

2220 - leap year

2250 - regular year

2280 - leap year

2310 - regular year

2340 - leap year

2370 - regular year

2400 - leap year

2430 - regular year

2460 - leap year

2490 - regular year

2520 - leap year

2550 - regular year

2580 - leap year

2610 - regular year

2640 - leap year

2670 - regular year

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.

###### Asked in Leap Year

### Is the first year of a century a leap year?

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.

### Was 1999 a leap year?

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.
