Tags

This is the C program code and algorithm for checking whether the given year is a leap year or not.

Aim:

Write a C program to check whether the given year is a leap year or not.

Algorithm:

Step 1: Start
Step 2: Read year year
Step 3: if year mod 400 is 0, print the year is a leap year & go to step 7.
Step 4: if year mod 100 is 0, print the year is not a leap year & go to step 7.
Step 5: if year mod 4 is 0, print the year is a leap year & go to step 7.
Step 6: print the year is not a leap year.
Step 7: Stop

Program code

#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>

void main( )
{
clrscr( )
 int year;
 printf("Enter the year: ");
 scanf("%d",&year);

if(year%400==0)
printf("The year is a leap year");

else if(year%100==0)
printf("The year is not a leap year");

else if(year%4==0)
printf("The year is a leap year");

else
printf("The year is not a leap year");
getch( );
}

Output

Enter the year : 2012

The year is a leap year
