    Exclamation How do I calculate the beginning of the year on Rub


    I have part of the code of the program but I need to add "at_the_beginning_of_year" method?


    class Fixnum
    def seconds;self; end
    def minutes;self*60; end
    def hours; self*60*60; end
    def days; self*60*60*24; end
    def at__the_beginning_of_year ????

    end

    if compile the below statement
    Time.now.at_the_beginning_of_year

    the output will be:
    2014-01-01 00:00:00 - 0800

    Hi,

    forget about Ruby for a second and approach this problem with nothing but your brain: Given a timestamp, how do you get to the beginning of the year?
