Below program illustrate the above method:

`// Java code to show the function from() ` `// which represents the period of given amount ` `import` `java.time.Period; ` ` ` `public` `class` `PeriodClassGfG { ` ` ` ` ` `// Function to convert given amount to period ` ` ` `static` `void` `convertToPeriod(` `int` `year, ` `int` `months, ` `int` `days) ` ` ` `{ ` ` ` `Period period = Period.from(Period.of(year, months, days)); ` ` ` ` ` `System.out.println(period); ` ` ` `} ` ` ` ` ` `// Driver code ` ` ` `public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args) ` ` ` `{ ` ` ` ` ` `int` `year = ` `20` `, months = ` `13` `, days = ` `17` `; ` ` ` `Period period = Period.from(Period.of(year, months, days)); ` ` ` ` ` `convertToPeriod(year, months, days); ` ` ` `} ` `} ` |
