Initial Code
```/**
* Calculate Age
*
* Calculates the amount of time since the date specified with yr, mon, and day.
* The parameter "countunit" can be "years", "months", or "days" and is the duration
* between the specified day and today in the selected denomination. The "decimals"
* parameter allows you to set a decimal place to round to for days and months return
* values. Rounding is also meant for days and months and can be "roundup" or "rounddown"
* based solely on the properties of Math.ceil and math.floor respectively.
* Sample - displayage(1997, 11, 24, "years", 0, "rounddown")
