``````# Import the library here!
from datetime import date

def counting_the_days(start_date, end_date):
return (end_date - start_date).days

print(counting_the_days(date(1987, 9, 29), date(2017, 9, 29)))``````

Counting the Days

The datetime library is useful for much more than just getting and formatting dates!

You can let Python perform mathy calculations for you as well.

For this exercise, create a function `counting_the_days` that receives a variable `start_date` and `end_date`. Subtract `start_date` from `end_date` and you will produce a `timedelta` object. To practice using this, return your timedelta object in the format of days using they `days` method.

Example:

``````counting_the_days(date(1987, 9, 29), date(2017, 9, 29)) # 10958
``````

Test Cases

test counting the days -

``````def test_counting_the_days():
assert counting_the_days(date(1987, 9, 29), date(2017, 9, 29)) == 10958``````
# Import the library here! def counting_the_days(start_date, end_date): pass
