Ruby program to check leap year

Ruby | Checking Leap Year: Here, we are going to learn how to check whether a given year is Leap year or not?
Submitted by Hrithik Chandra Prasad, on May 07, 2020

Problem statement: Given a year, we have to check whether it is a Leap year or not using Ruby program.

Methods used:

  • gets(): This method is a public instance method of String class which is used to take input from the console.
  • puts(): This method is a public instance method of String class which is used to print Strings on the console.

Program 1:

=begin
  Ruby program to check whether 
  the year is leap year or not.	
=end

puts "Enter the year you want to check"
yr = gets.chomp.to_i

if yr % 400 == 0
	puts "#{yr} is a leap year"
elsif yr % 4 == 0 && yr % 100 !=0
	puts "#{yr} is a leap year"
else
	puts "#{yr} is not a leap year"
end

Output

RUN 1:
Enter the year you want to check
 2020
2020 is a leap year

RUN 2:
Enter the year you want to check
 1900
1900 is not a leap year

RUN 3:
Enter the year you want to check
 2200
2200 is not a leap year

RUN 4:
Enter the year you want to check
 2204
2204 is a leap year

Explanation:

In the above code, you can observe that first, we have checked whether the year is divisible by 4 or not, if it is divisible by 4 then the year is simply a leap year. Otherwise, to be a leap year, it should satisfy both the conditions which are there in elsif then only it will be considered as a leap year otherwise not.

Program 2:

=begin
  Ruby program to check whether the 
  year is leap year or not between range.		
=end

puts "Enter the lower limit:"
lwr = gets.chomp.to_i
puts "Enter the upper limit:"
upr = gets.chomp.to_i

for yr in lwr..upr do
  if yr % 400 == 0
    puts "#{yr} is a leap year"
  elsif yr % 4 == 0 && yr % 100 !=0
    puts "#{yr} is a leap year"
  else
    puts "#{yr} is not a leap year"
  end
end

Output

Enter the lower limit:
 2000
Enter the upper limit:
 2100
2000 is a leap year
2001 is not a leap year
2002 is not a leap year
2003 is not a leap year

Explanation:

In the above code, you can observe that our program is asking for a range under which we want to find the leap year. You can see that we are getting all the leap years which lie between the range.
