## Leap year in python program

In this program, we are going to test whether a given year is a leap year or not.

Leap year is the year that is divisible by 4 except the century year that is ending with 00.

The century year is the leap year only if it is perfectly divisible by 400.

For example:

2017 is not a leap year.

2000 is a leap year.

Algorithm:

1. Input the year from the user.
2. Check using if statements, whether it is a leap year or not.
3. Print the final result
4. Exit

Code:

n= int(input("Enter the year you want to check?"))
if (n%4==0):
if (n%100==0):
if (n%400==0):
print("It is a leap year")
else:
print("It is not a leap year")
else:
print("It is a leap year")
else:
    print("It is not a leap year")

Output:

Enter the year you want to check? 1996
It is a leap year
Enter the year you want to check? 1900
It is not a leap year
