# Python datetime.timedelta.timedelta Days Attribute

Vaibhav Vaibhav Jan 30, 2023

A timedelta refers to the difference between two times. This value can be expressed in various units such as minutes, seconds, hours, days, months, weeks, milliseconds, nanoseconds, etc.

The Python programming language contains a module `datetime` with various classes and procedures to efficiently work with quantities such as time, date, date with time, timezones, etc. It also offers a class `timedelta` that makes computing this difference seamless.

Using these class instances, we can perform various mathematical operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, modulo division, negation, etc.

This class also offers attributes that store all the basic values related to the timedelta, such as `minutes`, `hours`, and `days`. In this article, we will talk about one such attribute, `days`.

To learn more about the `timedelta` class in-depth and understand what and how mathematical operations are performed over the `timedelta` class instances, refer to the official Python documentation here.

## Syntax

``````<timedelta-object > .days
``````

### Parameters

Since `days` is an attribute, not a method, it doesn’t accept any parameters.

### Returns

Since `days` is an attribute, not a method, it doesn’t return anything. It stores the value of days in a `timedelta` object.

## Example Code: Use the `datetime.timedelta.timedelta.days` Attribute in Python

``````import datetime

delta = datetime.timedelta(
days=25,
seconds=33,
microseconds=10,
milliseconds=39020,
minutes=54,
hours=22,
weeks=3,
)
print("TimeDelta:", delta)
print("Days:", delta.days)
``````

Output:

``````TimeDelta: 46 days, 22:55:12.020010
Days: 46
``````

The output shows that the value for `days` is `46`. It is because the time delta has `25` days and `3` weeks, according to which `25 + (3 * 7) = 46`.
