Hi.  Thanks Why and 'captn.

If I wanted to include the array A as a class-accessor, how would I
extend the three def's to the variable?

IE:

class GridMaster
  attr_accessor :grid

  def create_grid
    @grid = [ ... ]
  end
End

Irb>gm = GridMaster.new
Irb>gm.create_grid
Irb>gm.grid.row(1)
???

Let's start with the easy stuff.

def a.col i
  transpose[i-1]

a.col 1
=> [10, 12, 30, 32]

As far as the `grid' method goes, do you want it to always do a 2x2
square or are you looking for some other math here?

  def a.grid i
    i -= 1
    (0..1).map do |j|
      at(((i/2)*2)+j)[(i%2)*2,2]
    end
  end
