I need to make a program that when asked the number of minutes you sleep. ie 437. It will tell you 17:00 to 00:17, 18:01 to 01:18. Basically the times when the first and last digits are backwards and 437 minutes apart. I am having a hard time setting up the loops and if statements. How to I go about this? How many while or for loops will I need? Please help.
# the function counts the number of minutes between two times # Input:
# t1, t2 - strings, represeting time in the form "HH:MM", # e.g. "15:32" # Output: # d - distance between these times in minutes. # It is assumed that t1 is before t2. # Even if t1="22:00" and t2="00:45", # then the distance is 45 + 2*60 = 165
def mins (t1, t2): # compte the minutes from 00:00 till t1 and t2 m1 = int(t1[0:2])*60 + int(t1[3:5]) m2 = int(t2[0:2])*60 + int(t2[3:5])
# if m2 > m1 then we should return m2-m1, # otherwise, we should return # m2 + (number of minutes in 24 hours=60*24-1440) - m1
