# Happy Leap Day Fan Club Buddies!

### Hey Fan Club Buddies,

It is February 29th which means it is…Leap day! This day only occurs once every four years, in years which are divisible by the number 4, like this year as 2012 can be divided by 4!

## Hey Fan Club Buddies,

It is February 29th which means it is…Leap day! This day only occurs once every four years, in years which are divisible by the number 4, like this year as 2012 can be divided by 4!

A Leap Year is needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth's revolutions around the sun. It takes the Earth approximately 365.242199 days to orbit once around the Sun. If we didn't add a day on February 29 nearly every 4 years, we would lose almost six hours every year!

There are many people born on February 29th and they are known as Leaplings. But they have to celebrate their birthday on the 28th of February or 1st of March on non- leap years! Do we have any Leaplings in the Fan Club?

Today, Sten has a mathematical problem to solve, so Fan Club Buddies can you help him out by answering this question…
