Return Value: This method returns a Duration which is an immutable copy of the existing duration with the parameter value divided to it.

Below examples illustrate the Duration.dividedBy() method:

Example 1:




// Java code to illustrate dividedBy() method
  
import java.time.Duration;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Duration 1 using parse() method
        Duration duration1
            = Duration.parse("P2DT3H4M");
  
        // divisor value
        long divisor = 2;
  
        // Get the duration divided
        // using dividedBy() method
        System.out.println(duration1
                               .dividedBy(divisor));
    }
}

Output:

PT25H32M

Example 2:




// Java code to illustrate dividedBy() method
  
import java.time.Duration;
  
public class GFG {

    {
  
        // Duration 1 using parse() method
        Duration duration1
            = Duration.parse("P2DT3H4M");
  
        // divisor value
        long divisor = 10;
  
        // Get the duration divided
        // using dividedBy() method
        System.out.println(duration1
                               .dividedBy(divisor));
