Hello everybody. I am new to Ruby and understand the bare minimum of

basic concepts. I was wondering if there was a way to take the input of

a user (supposedly a mathematical equation) and return the answer. For

example, if I started the Ruby script in my Terminal, is there a way

that I would be able to type in 1+2 and get a returned answer of 3?

Something I tried was:

puts “Enter Equation”

answervar = gets.chomp

doneans = answervar.to_i

puts doneans

Yet, all that did was return the first number of the equation. Any help

or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
