I know the author said use irb to test, however, I really dislike the irb, too much stuff being printed out. So instead of quizzing myself on irb, I’ll write the code and print it out.

Study Drill

1. With what you know of the difference between these types of numbers. Can you explain why the year 2010 in “January 1, 2010,” really is 2010 and not 2009? (Hint: You can’t pick years at random.)
The hint says can’t pick years at random. That means it’s ordinal number, it started at year 1. I have no clue. Humans reasoning can sometimes be illogical. Why don’t we start at 0?

2. Write some arrays and work out similar indexes until you can translate them.
I used the same arrays and translated in the comment sections. I just memorized Ordinal means ordered, does not start with 0, therefore no zeroth.

3. Use ruby to check answers.
Again, I dislike the irb, too much stuff printed out.
