## month_apart

Language/Type: Python if/else parameters return boolean logic

Write a function named `month_apart` that accepts four integer parameters representing two calendar dates. Each date consists of a month (1 through 12) and a day (1 through the number of days in that month [28-31]). Assume that all dates occur during the same year. The function returns whether the dates are at least a month apart. For example, the following dates are all considered to be at least a month apart from 9/19 (September 19): 2/14, 7/25, 8/2, 8/19, 10/19, 10/20, and 11/5. The following dates are NOT at least a month apart from 9/19: 9/20, 9/28, 10/1, 10/15, and 10/18. Note that the first date could come before or after (or be the same as) the second date. Assume that all parameter values passed are valid.

Sample calls:

• `month_apart(6, 14, 9, 21)` should return `True`, because June 14 is at least a month before September 21
• `month_apart(4, 5, 5, 15)` should return `True`, because April 5 is at least a month before May 15
• `month_apart(4, 15, 5, 15)` should return `True`, because April 15 is at least a month before May 15
• `month_apart(4, 16, 5, 15)` should return `False`, because April 16 isn't at least a month apart from May 15
• `month_apart(6, 14, 6, 8)` should return `False`, because June 14 isn't at least a month apart from June 8
• `month_apart(7, 7, 6, 8)` should return `False`, because July 7 isn't at least a month apart from June 8
• `month_apart(7, 8, 6, 8)` should return `True`, because July 8 is at least a month after June 8
• `month_apart(10, 14, 7, 15)` should return `True`, because October 14 is at least a month after July 15
Function: Write a Python function as described, not a complete program.
