Below programs illustrate the plus(long, unit) method:

Program 1:  

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// YearMonth.plus(long, unit) method
 
import java.time.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Create a YearMonth object
        YearMonth thisYearMonth = YearMonth.of(2017, 8);
 
        // print instance
        System.out.println("YearMonth :"
                           + thisYearMonth);
 
        // apply plus(long, unit) method
        // adding 15 Years
        YearMonth value
            = thisYearMonth.plus(15, ChronoUnit.YEARS);
 
        // print result
        System.out.println("After addition YearMonth: "
                           + value);
    }
}


Output: 

YearMonth :2017-08
After addition YearMonth: 2032-08

 

Program 2: 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// YearMonth.plus(long, unit) method
 
import java.time.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Create a YearMonth object
        YearMonth thisYearMonth = YearMonth.of(2019, 12);
 
        // print instance
        System.out.println("YearMonth :"
                           + thisYearMonth);
 
        // apply plus(long, unit) method
        // adding 30 Months
        YearMonth value
            = thisYearMonth.plus(30, ChronoUnit.MONTHS);
 
        // print result
        System.out.println("After addition YearMonth: "
                           + value);
    }
}


Output: 

YearMonth :2019-12
