# Java Program to Check Whether a Given Year is a Leap Year

Leap Year Program in Java: A year is a Leap Year if it satisfies the following conditions:

• The year is exactly divisible by 400 (such as 2000,2400) or,
• The year is exactly divisible by 4 (such as 2008, 2012, 2016) and not a multiple of 100 (such as 1900, 2100, 2200).
Problem Description

Write a Java Program to check whether a given year is a leap year or not.

Problem Solution

1. Take a year as input.
2. Check whether a given year is divisible by 400.
3. Check whether a given year is divisible by 100.
4. Check whether a given year is divisible by 4.
5. If the condition at step 2 and 4 becomes true, then the year is a leap year.
6. If the condition at step 3 becomes true, then the year is not a leap year.

Program/Source Code

Here is the source code of the Java Program to Find if a Given Year is a Leap Year. The Java program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system. The program output is also shown below.

```import java.util.Scanner;
public class Check_Leap_Year
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
Scanner s = new Scanner(System.in);
System.out.print("Enter any year:");
int year = s.nextInt();
boolean flag = false;
if(year % 400 == 0)
{
flag = true;
}
else if (year % 100 == 0)
{
flag = false;
}
else if(year % 4 == 0)
{
flag = true;
}
else
{
flag = false;
}
if(flag)
{
System.out.println("Year "+year+" is a Leap Year");
}
else
{
System.out.println("Year "+year+" is not a Leap Year");
}
}
}```
Program Explanation

1. Enter any year as an input. We first whether the given year is divisible by 400 or not.
2. If it is divisible then it is a leap year else we check for further conditions.
3. Now if it is divisible by 100 then it is not a leap year or else we further divide it by 4.
4. If it is divisible then it is a leap year else its not.

Runtime Testcases

Testcase 1: In this case, we enter the year “1800” as input to check whether a given year is leap year or not.

```Enter any year:
1800
1800 is not a Leap Year```

Testcase 2: In this case, we enter the year “2000” as input to check whether a given year is leap year or not.
