Bash isn't recognizing the ruby start.rb.

I'm trying to follow along with the lesson but I'm getting a different output from bash. I clone the hello-treehouse file and have the start.rb file in there, but when I try to run the command to start it, bash tells me that "bash: ruby: command not found." Anyone have an idea about what I'm doing wrong?

If you have ruby installed you may need to add the ruby path to your bash_profile. How to do this depends on what OS and how ruby was installed.
