Trouble with Delorean Function
The task is: Write a function named delorean that takes an integer. Return a datetime that is that many hours ahead from starter.
Thank You For Your Help In Advance!!!!!!!!!!
import datetime def delorean(): starter = datetime.datetime(2015, 10, 21, 16, 29) return datetime.datetime.now() - starter

When the instructions say to write a function "that takes an integer", they mean it should take an argument that is an integer type. But the function defined above doesn't take any argument.
You'll need to use that argument to calculate a time later than "starter". You won't need the current (now) time.
