Ruby Array: Exercise-21 with Solution

Write a Ruby program to compute the sum of two arrays (length 3) and return the array which has the largest sum.

Ruby Array Exercises: Compute the sum of two arrays and return the array which has the largest sum

Ruby Code:

def check_array(a, b)
    sum = (a[0]+a[1]+a[2])-(b[0]+b[1]+b[2])
	if(sum >= 0)
		return a
	end
	return b
end
print check_array([1, 3, 5], [2, 4, 4]),"\n"
print check_array([11, 3, 5], [21, 0, -4]),"\n"  

Output:

[2, 4, 4]
[11, 3, 5]
