Reverse Each Word


  1. Understand the return value of the each method
  2. Use the .collect method
  3. Understand the return value of the .collect method
  4. Use the return of collect for further operation


Write a method called reverse_each_word that takes in a string argument of a sentence and returns that same sentence with each word reversed in place.

First solve it using .each Then utilize the same method using .collect to see the difference.

For example:

reverse_each_word("Hello there, and how are you?")
  #=> "olleH ,ereht dna woh era ?uoy"

Hint: You can't use an enumerator on a string, so how can we turn our string into an array?

Hint: How can we reverse each word and return those altered words? Remember that .each returns the original array but other enumerators don't.

Learn about Flatiron School's Mission

With a new take on education that falls somewhere between self-taught prodigy and four-year computer science degree, the Flatiron School promises to turn students with little programming experience into developers.

In the six months since the Manhattan coding school was acquired by WeWork, it has spawned locations in Washington, D.C., Brooklyn, and London. Now, WeWork is opening a fourth Flatiron School location, this time in Houston.

Adam Enbar, Flatiron School's cofounder, believes now is the time to grow. "How the world is changing has impacted working and learning in very similar ways. We think education fundamentally is about one thing: enabling people to pursue a better life."
