If anybody can help, please do!

Not sure if this is the best way, but it seems to work for me

def get_roman_numeral(int, rn) values = {1000 => 'M', 900 => 'CM', 500 => 'D', 400 => 'CD', 100 => 'C', 90 => 'XC', 50 => 'L', 40 => 'XL', 10 => 'X', 9 => 'IX', 5 => 'V', 4 => 'IV', 1 => 'I'} values.each_pair do |key, value| if int >= key rn.push(value) return get_roman_numeral(int - key, rn) end end return rn end puts 'Enter a number to be converted to a Roman numeral' int = gets.chomp.to_i original_int = int roman_numeral = Array.new roman_numeral = get_roman_numeral(int, roman_numeral) numeral = '' roman_numeral.each() do |r_numeral| numeral = numeral + r_numeral end puts "#{original_int}, when converted to a Roman numeral, is #{numeral}!"
