Let’s take an example of a calendar or a normal year. Then we will take an example of a leap year.
For Normal Year
Example: The year 2015
It’s not a leap year. Hence, it has total 365 days. So, the number of weeks will be 52 + 1 day.
Total days = 365
Weeks = 365 / 7 = 52 weeks + 1 day
For Leap Year
Example: The year 2016
It’s a leap year. Therefore, it has 366 days in total. The number of weeks will be 52 + 2 days.
Total days = 366
Weeks = 366 / 7 = 52 weeks + 2 day
After 2016, the next leap year will be 2020. After one leap year, the next leap year comes every 4 years. So, you can add 4 years with last leap year and get the next upcoming leap year.
