Leap years are any year that is divisible by 4 and so 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016 were/are all leap years. However the year can not be divisible by 400, so 1800, 1900 and 2100 are not leap years. Each year is not exactly 365 1/4(the quarters being stored to make the whole day on a leap year ie February 29th). So you have to remove 3 days every four centuries, hence there won’t be a leap year in 2100.http://science.howstuffworks.com/science-vs-myth/everyday-myths/question50.htm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/February_29
