        LocalTime time
            = LocalTime.parse("19:34:50.63");
  
        // print LocalTime
        System.out.println("LocalTime before subtraction: "
                           + time);
  
        // subtract 3 hours using minusHours()
        LocalTime value = time.minusHours(3);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("LocalTime after subtraction: "
                           + value);
    }
}
