How do I do this one?

I'm really confused with this one. This is the latest bit of code I have tried.

I'd be grateful for any help.


import datetime

def minutes(date_time1, date_time2):    
    return round((datetime.timedelta.total_seconds(date_time2) - datetime.timedelta.total_seconds(date_time1)) / 60)

Assuming that this is in python I believe your answer should look like this

import datetime
def minutes(datetime1, datetime2):
    time_delta = datetime2- datetime1
    minutes = round(time_delta.total_seconds() / 60)
    return minutes
