        System.out.println("Original ChronoLocalDateTime: "
                           + ldt.toString());
  
        // subtract 10 Days to ChronoLocalDateTime
        ChronoLocalDateTime value
            = ldt.minus(Period.ofDays(10));
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("ChronoLocalDateTime after"
                           + " subtracting Days: "
                           + value);
    }
