Solution

Convert a number to a string, the contents of which depend on the number's factors.

  • If the number has 3 as a factor, output 'Pling'.
  • If the number has 5 as a factor, output 'Plang'.
  • If the number has 7 as a factor, output 'Plong'.
  • If the number does not have 3, 5, or 7 as a factor, just pass the number's digits straight through.

Examples

  • 28's factors are 1, 2, 4, 7, 14, 28.
    • In raindrop-speak, this would be a simple "Plong".
  • 30's factors are 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30.
    • In raindrop-speak, this would be a "PlingPlang".
  • 34 has four factors: 1, 2, 17, and 34.
    • In raindrop-speak, this would be "34".

For installation and learning resources, refer to the Ruby resources page.

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

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.

Run the tests from the exercise directory using the following command:

ruby raindrops_test.rb

To include color from the command line:

ruby -r minitest/pride raindrops_test.rb

What can you learn from this solution?

A huge amount can be learnt from reading other people’s code. This is why we wanted to give exercism users the option of making their solutions public.

Here are some questions to help you reflect on this solution and learn the most from it.

  • What compromises have been made?
  • Are there new concepts here that I could read more about to develop my understanding?
