Class Method Details

.generate(amount, parts, whole_amounts = true) ⇒ Object

Splits a given amount in parts without losing pennies. The left-over pennies will be distributed round-robin amongst the parts. This means that parts listed first will likely receive more pennies than the ones listed later.

The results should always add up to the original amount.

The parts can be specified as:

Numeric — performs the split between a given number of parties evenely
Array<Numeric> — allocates the amounts proportionally to the given array

Raises:

  • (ArgumentError)
