# JavaScript: Check whether a value is an integer or not

## JavaScript Math: Exercise-15 with Solution

Write a JavaScript function to check whether a value is an integer or not.

Test Data:
console.log(is_Int(23));
console.log(is_Int(4e2));
console.log(is_Int(NaN));
console.log(is_Int(23.75));
console.log(is_Int(-23));
Output :
true
true
false
false
true

Visual Presentation:

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

``````// Define a function named is_Int that checks if a number is an integer.
function is_Int(num) {
// Check if the input is not a number, if so, return false.
if (typeof num !== 'number')
return false;
// Check if the number is not NaN, if its integer representation equals itself, and if parsing it as an integer with base 10 does not result in NaN.
return !isNaN(num) &&
parseInt(Number(num)) == num &&
!isNaN(parseInt(num, 10));
}

// Output the result of checking if 23 is an integer to the console.
console.log(is_Int(23));
// Output the result of checking if 4e2 is an integer to the console.
console.log(is_Int(4e2));
// Output the result of checking if NaN is an integer to the console.
console.log(is_Int(NaN));
// Output the result of checking if 23.75 is an integer to the console.
console.log(is_Int(23.75));
// Output the result of checking if -23 is an integer to the console.
console.log(is_Int(-23));
```
```

Output:

```true
true
false
false
true
```
