Hi, I will be getting from source the date format as string mm/dd/yyyy ("11/04/1920").
I would like to know is there any easy logic to find out the Age.
I would like to know if the Age is >=16

    Check this method:

    string example = "11/04/1920";
    DateTime date = DateTime.Parse( example, CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo( "en-US" ) );
    DateTime today = DateTime.Today;
    int age = today.Year - date.Year;
    if( date.AddYears( age ) > today ) age -= 1;
    
    if( age >= 16 )
    {
       // . . .
    }

    Step 1: Create a method to Check the Age

    public static int GetAge(DateTime dob)
    {

    return DateTime.Now.AddYears(-dob.Year).Year;  
    

    }

    Step 2: Call the method

       string inputDate="11/04/1920";
    
       if(GetAge(Convert.ToDateTime(inputDate))>=16)
        {
         // TODO:
        }
        else
        {
           //TODO:
        }
