  • Last Updated : 28 May, 2019

minus() method of a ChronoZonedDateTime class used to returns a copy of this date-time with the specified amount subtracted to date-time.The amount is typically Period or Duration but may be any other type implementing the TemporalAmount interface.


default ChronoZonedDateTime minus(TemporalAmount amountTosubtract)

Parameters: This method accepts one single parameter amountTosubtract which is the amount to subtract, It should not be null.

Return value: This method returns ChronoZonedDateTime based on this date-time with the subtractition made, not null

Below programs illustrate the minus() method:

Program 1:

// Java program to demonstrate
// ChronoZonedDateTime.minus() method
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.temporal.ChronoUnit;
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        // create a ChronoZonedDateTime object
        ChronoZonedDateTime zonedlt
            = ZonedDateTime
        // subtract 10 Days to ChronoZonedDateTime
        ChronoZonedDateTime value
            = zonedlt.minus(Period.ofDays(10));
        // print result
        System.out.println("ChronoZonedDateTime after"
                           + " subtracting Days:\n "
                           + value);
ChronoZonedDateTime after subtracting Days:
