    // // main.cpp // week5-4-4 #include <iostream> #include <cmath> using namespace std; int main() { double a; cin >> a; if (sqrt(a)%1.0 == 0) cout << "It's an integer."; else cout << "It's NOT an integer. Sorry."; return 0; }

    This is the code I created for the problem. I don't know why it doesn't run. Can you help me spot the problem?

    You cannot use the modulus operator with a double.

    Use this instead: if (fmod(sqrt(a),1.0) == 0)

    Because it is designed to take an integer.

    You might also have trouble with the == it's always iffy to compare doubles. think of all the times a computer's told you 2.0 + 2.0 = 3.99999999
