Python Dates and Times in Python Dates and Times Timedelta Minute

Can't find the error

Hi everyone,

I keep getting a bummer saying it was expecting 1507 but got 1506. Don't really know what to change to make it work.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

minutes.py
import datetime

def minutes(initial, final):
    final = final - initial
    return round(final.total_seconds() // 60)

Hi Soraia,

// indicates what is called 'floor division' (also 'integer division') and will return an integer (surprise!) instead of a float. / indicates 'floating point' division and returns a float instead. I'm sure you can figure out where to go from there and what may be happening as a result of getting an int back from your division instead of a float. :)

Thanks!
