# 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

```

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.
