Ruby Basic Exercises: Check two given integers and return the larger value

Ruby Basic: Exercise-50 with Solution

Write a Ruby program to check two given integers and return the larger value. However if the two values have the same remainder when divided by 5 then return the smaller value and if the two values are the same, return 0.

Ruby Basic Exercises: Check two given integers and return the larger value

Ruby Code:

def check_num(a, b)
   if(a == b)
		return 0
	end	
	if(a % 5 == b % 5)
		return (a < b) ? a : b
	end
	return (a > b) ? a : b
end

print check_num(9, 12),"\n"
print check_num(110, 200),"\n"
print check_num(10, 10)

Output:

12
110
0
