    just think how would you do it real life. Figure out how many days are in each month. then count all the days until you get to the specified date.

    You don't have to use the time functions. You can simply ask for two dates, figure out how many days there are, multiply by 24. They never said anything about counting the exact number of hours based on the time in each day. So you get to assume they mean entire days worth.
