Ruby Programming Language

Loops allow us to repeat the same steps of code as many times as we desire without having to type that code multiple times.

A danger of loops that that a poorly coded loop can last forever. So we always wish to include a condition in the loop that will cause it to stop. The condition can be for the loop to run a specific number of times, or to keep running until a specified event occurs.

In the code below, the word whilecreate the condition.

[code lang=”ruby”]
while period < finalperiodlimit do lineargrowth = 1.0 ∗ period

exponentialgrowth = Math.exp(period)
