Timedelta Minute challenge.
What am I missing?
import datetime def minutes(date1, date2): return round(datetime.timedelta.total_seconds(date2 - date1))

Hey Jake Williams, you are close!
The difference between two
datetime objects is a
timedelta object. So, subtract the dates to get the
timedelta object, then you can use the
total_seconds() method on the result. (The method can be used directly on the subtraction result!). Remember to divide by 60 to get minutes!
Post back if you need more help! Good luck!!
