Understanding the question

import datetime def minutes(x, y): final = x - y secs = final.timedelta.total_seconds() ans = secs%60 return ans

You have the right idea, but a few issues:
- the instructions say "You'll need to subtract the first from the second." (so switch the order)
- "final" is a timedelta, so you can access the "total_seconds" method on it directly
- to get minutes, you need to divide seconds by 60 (not get remainder)
- the instructions also say to round the result
