        // print LocalTime
        System.out.println("LocalTime before subtraction: "
                           + time);
  
        // subtract 55 Minutes using minusMinutes()
        LocalTime value = time.minusMinutes(55);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("LocalTime after subtraction: "
                           + value);
