Sum Of Multiples

Given a number, find the sum of all the multiples of particular numbers up to but not including that number.

If we list all the natural numbers up to but not including 20 that are multiples of either 3 or 5, we get 3, 5, 6 and 9, 10, 12, 15, and 18.

The sum of these multiples is 78.

Given a number, find the sum of the multiples of a given set of numbers, up to but not including that number.


For installation and learning resources, refer to the exercism help page.

For running the tests provided, you will need the Minitest gem. Open a terminal window and run the following command to install minitest:

1
gem install minitest

If you would like color output, you can require 'minitest/pride' in the test file, or note the alternative instruction, below, for running the test file.

In order to run the test, you can run the test file from the exercise directory. For example, if the test suite is called hello_world_test.rb, you can run the following command:

1
ruby hello_world_test.rb

To include color from the command line:

1
ruby -r minitest/pride hello_world_test.rb
