month()
Alias for: months
months()

Enables the use of time calculations and declarations, like `45.minutes + 2.hours + 4.years`.

These methods use Time#advance for precise date calculations when using `from_now`, `ago`, etc. as well as adding or subtracting their results from a Time object.

``````# equivalent to Time.now.advance(months: 1)
1.month.from_now

2.years.from_now

# equivalent to Time.now.advance(months: 4, years: 5)
(4.months + 5.years).from_now
``````
Also aliased as: month
```# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/integer/time.rb, line 20
def months
ActiveSupport::Duration.months(self)
end```
multiple_of?(number)

Check whether the integer is evenly divisible by the argument.

``````0.multiple_of?(0)  # => true
6.multiple_of?(5)  # => false
10.multiple_of?(2) # => true
``````
```# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/integer/multiple.rb, line 7
def multiple_of?(number)
number != 0 ? self % number == 0 : zero?
end```
ordinal()

Ordinal returns the suffix used to denote the position in an ordered sequence such as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th.

``````1.ordinal     # => "st"
2.ordinal     # => "nd"
1002.ordinal  # => "nd"
1003.ordinal  # => "rd"
-11.ordinal   # => "th"
-1001.ordinal # => "st"
``````
```# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/integer/inflections.rb, line 26
def ordinal
ActiveSupport::Inflector.ordinal(self)
end```
ordinalize()

Ordinalize turns a number into an ordinal string used to denote the position in an ordered sequence such as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th.

``````1.ordinalize     # => "1st"
2.ordinalize     # => "2nd"
1002.ordinalize  # => "1002nd"
1003.ordinalize  # => "1003rd"
-11.ordinalize   # => "-11th"
-1001.ordinalize # => "-1001st"
``````
```# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/integer/inflections.rb, line 13
def ordinalize
ActiveSupport::Inflector.ordinalize(self)
end```
year()
Alias for: years
years()
Also aliased as: year
```# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/integer/time.rb, line 25
def years
ActiveSupport::Duration.years(self)
end```
