  1. Assuming you want the difference in days between dates.

    It's a messy counting problem.

    First note that the dates are written in MM/DD/YYYY format.
    Difference in Months:
    October-May=31+30+31+31+30=153 days
    Difference in days
    28-17=11 days
    Difference in years
    2002-1987=15 years including 4 leap years
    =15*365+4
    =5479 days
    Total=153+11+5479=5643 days
