**Why every fourth year is a leap year?**

As per the **Gregorian calendar**, our **earth takes 365.25635 days to completely revolve around the sun**, so if we count every year as 365 days then what about 0.25 days? So to balance this extra 0.25 days and avoid the errors that can occur every 4^{th} year is called a leap year with 366 days.

** Calculation to find out the year is a leap year or not?**

It’s very easy to identify a leap year, if the particular year is evenly divisible by 4 then it’s a leap year.

**Leap Year = Year / 4**

if the number of the year is completely divided by 4 and the remainder is 0 then that specific year is a leap year.

Example:

you want to see the year 2020 is a leap year or not

so 2020/4, 2020 is exactly divided by 4 so year 2020 is a leap year

__Note: The time or days taken by earth to revolve around the sun completely is known as a sidereal year__
