# How to Calculate Leap Years?

Leap years almost always occur every four years, (i.e. in years that are divisible by 4). The only exceptions to this is that years that are evenly divisible by 100 are not leap years, unless they are also divisible by 400.
So this means that the years 1700, 1800, 1900, etc., were not leap years, but the year 2000 was, and the years 2400 and 2800 will be.
