Isn't it a bit redundant to use '.chomp' before '.to_i' ?

you observed that correctly! Actually there is no need to use the chomp method in this case as the to_i method ignores extraneous characters/whitespace in the end.
Thank you Tobias.

Correct! Ruby-docs state that extraneous characters past the end of a valid number are ignored.
