Python Dates and Times in Python Dates and Times Timedelta Minute

Bummer: Got the wrong number of minutes. Expected 1507, got 1373.

I am not sure why the answer could be different or why a single answer is actually expected. The arguments for minutes function are not defined.

import datetime

def minutes(t1, t2):
    td = t1 - t2
    td_minutes = (td.seconds)/60
    return round(td_minutes)

You don't see the arguments, but the challenge supplies some when it calls your function and checks for the correct result.

The instructions mentioned using the ".total_seconds()" method to get the complete delta, but this code has just "seconds". Also, the second date will be the later one, so the first one should be subtracted from it.
