Leap year occurs: on every year that is evenly divisible by 4, except every year that is evenly divisible by 100, except every year that is evenly divisible by 400.

In other words, I want to type

java Leap 2000

and see

leap year!

...In the three conditional sentences above, is the thinking:

" 2000 is evenly divisible by 4, so it is a leap year.

except 2000 is evenly divisible by 100, so it isn't a leap year.

except 2000 is evenly divisible by 400, so finally, it is a leap year. "

...I was going to post something else until I had the above thoughts

See Ya
