Go ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Steps

  • Take the value of the year as input.
  • Using an if-statement, check whether the year is a leap year or not
  • Print the final result.
Enter the year to be checked: 2016
The year is a leap year!
Enter the year to be checked: 2005
The year isn't a leap year!

Explanation

  • User must first enter the year to be checked.
  • The if statement checks if the year is a multiple of 4 but isn't a multiple of 100 or if it is a multiple of 400 (not every year that is a multiple of 4 is a leap year).
  • Then, the result is printed.

Example

 Live Demo

package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
   var year int
   fmt.Print("Enter the year to be checked:")
   fmt.Scanf("%d", &year)
   if year%4==0 && year%100!=0 || year%400==0{
      fmt.Println("The year is a leap year!")
   }else{
      fmt.Println("The year isn't a leap year!")
   }
}

Output

Enter the year to be checked:2016
The year is a leap year!
