Ruby Question

Check if a string is any of multiple items

I have a string

x = "student"

how do I check if "x" matches any of the items in a list of names that I have. The names are a fixed list.

names = ["teacher",

I tried setting names as a list and using any? to check the list but that seems to only work for an array and I have a string.

I am using Ruby 2.2.1 Also I only need it to return true or false if the item is in the list

Answer Source

If the string is inside the array it will return true
