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

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. :)
