Others have answered the question.  Just so you know, though, Ted Kaehler's
method finder is excellent for finding these answers.  If you start up
Squeak, open a method finder (with the "open" menu), and type in:

	2 . 3 . 8

Then you will find the existing method for this operation.  This is
a fantastic tool for all the little basic questions that people have
when they are learning a new language.
