Python Dates and Times in Python (2014) Dates and Times Timedelta Minute

Stage 1 dates and times challenge question

When I return the arguments entered into the function 'minutes' I see the two datetimes were taken about a minute apart from each other. So what do you mean by 'minutes between them'? I don't understand how the answer is 7...

def minutes(d1, d2):

  return d1, d2

i think when you take away two dates, you get a time delta.. which returns difference in days/ seconds & microseconds.. (not sure if you get minute if not you convert seconds to minutes and return that)

Thx. That's correct. I got it.
