Integer methods: #positive? and #negative?: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features

Integer gains the #positive? and #negative? methods in Ruby on Rails 5. They allow developers to test an integer to see if it is a positive or negative value. They return a boolean true of false depending on the value. One is considered positive, negative one is considered negative, and zero is neither positive or negative. Kevin also notes that these methods are built-in to Ruby 2.3.
