Solution

Given a year, report if it is a leap year.

The tricky thing here is that a leap year in the Gregorian calendar occurs:

``````on every year that is evenly divisible by 4
except every year that is evenly divisible by 100
unless the year is also evenly divisible by 400
``````

For example, 1997 is not a leap year, but 1996 is. 1900 is not a leap year, but 2000 is.

## Notes

Though our exercise adopts some very simple rules, there is more to learn!

For a delightful, four minute explanation of the whole leap year phenomenon, go watch this youtube video.
