    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
