what is a way to get numbers in 2 diff columns one column is whole numbers and the other are numbers with decimal places

```
int price=' '; // i am attempting to grab a number that has a decimal but its not the correct way
int itemnum=' '; // i am attempting to grab a whole number but its not the right way
while((price== (price*1.00)) && (itemnum == (itemnum*1)))
```
