Add new exercises to Ruby

One of the easiest ways to add new exercises to the Ruby track is to translate them from other language tracks on Exercism. This page lists all of the exercises that exist on Exercism, but have not yet been implemented in Ruby.

The icon links to the generic, language-independent problem description

The icon links to the canonical test data

The language icons link to each existing implementation of the problem.

Once you've picked an exercise, follow the instructions in the Contributing Guide and submit your pull request to the Ruby track repository on GitHub.
