  If this is the standard uniform U(0,1) distribution (which I assume
from your phrase "*the* uniform distribution" (emphasis added))
then there will be no integers in the sample ... ??

  Looks like homework questions, which are not answered on this list.
Please read the posting guide; if these are *not* homework questions,
please give us a plausible context.  (Even if these are not homework
questions, the posting guide asks that you "do your homework" in a
broader sense by indicating what steps you have taken to solve your
problem on your own before posting.)

 One hint for the second question: ?rt

  good luck,
