ruby get haft of array

You can use Ruby's Array#slice method to get half of an array. Here's an example with step-by-step explanations:

  1. Define an array:
array = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8]

In this example, we have an array with eight elements.

  1. Use the slice method with a range argument to get half of the array:
half_array = array.slice(0, array.length / 2)

The slice method takes two arguments: the starting index and the length of the slice. In this case, we're using 0 as the starting index and array.length / 2 as the length to get half of the array. The array.length gives us the total number of elements in the array.

  1. Print the result:
puts half_array

This will output the half of the array:

[1, 2, 3, 4]

In this case, the first four elements of the original array are returned.

By using the slice method with appropriate arguments, you can easily obtain half of an array in Ruby.
