    Default Truncate and If statement with "is not a whole number"

    Our prof. gave us this pseudocode...he wants us to research and transform it into an actual program...

    i'm having a big problem on this part of the pseudocode

    if(Interval is not a whole number) then
    truncate interval

    how can i use a if statement in determining if it is a decimal or a whole number??

    and how do i use truncate??
    truncating it into ones twos or threes...

    this code has an array of 14 names i didn't include them

    If(N=1) then
    Set Interval to N
    while(Interval is not 1)
    Set Interval to ((Interval/3)+1)
    If(Interval is not a whole number) then
    Truncate Interval

    Set start to 1
    while(start <= Interval)
    Increment start

    set Unsrt_Indx to (start + interval)

    while(unsrt_Indx <= N)
    if (Arr[Unsrt_Indx - Interval] > arr[unsrt_Indx] then
    set str_indx to unsrt_indx
    set temp to arr[srt_indx]

    while((str_indx >start && (arr[str_indx-Interval] > temp))
    set arr[set_indx] to arr[str_index- interval]
    set str_indx to (crt_index - interval)

    set arr[str_indx] to temp

    set unsrt_indx to (unsrt_indx + interval)

    please help!! :)

    i possible help me transform this into a program :)

    If you're forever cleaning cobwebs, it's time to get rid of the spiders.

    Experiment with some of the Math class's methods using println to print out the results to see if any of them will do what you want.
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.
