Python Dates and Times in Python (2014) Dates and Times Time Tango

what am i doing wrong? Ive run this on another text editor and get a correct answer.

I keep on getting the try again error with no clarification as to what is wrong with my code. I've run this outside of team treehouse and looks like I'm getting the correct answer. If anybody could tell me what I'm doing wrong id appreciate it.

import datetime
def time_tango(date, time):
    full = f"{date} {time}"
    full_parse = datetime.datetime.strptime(full, '%m/%d/%y %H:%M')
    full_date = full_parse.strftime('%m/%d/%y %H:%M')
    return full_date

You're far too clever for this challenge! Your solution would work for a very specific datetime format, but...

It is much simpler. Hint: there is a method of datetime.datetime.combine(date, time) that will handle it for you!

Simply make that the return value of time_tango() and you'll be golden!
