I’ve just spent the last 4 days in Ruby and I am a total beginner so my apologies for the question if it doesn’t pass the smart questions game:

My answer for this problem was:

under_100 = Proc.new do |x| 
x <= 100 

youngsters = ages.select(&under_100)
puts youngsters

#==> [23, 7, 11, 94, 100, 70, 44]

The correct answer:

under_100 = Proc.new { |x| x < 100 }

Yields the same result but mine didn’t pass the test, other than taking more lines, what’s wrong with my syntax?

Also this is my first forum entry! Cheers!

I found my error. The “=” symbol results in including 100 in the output! Oops!
