## stretch

Language/Type: JavaScript arrays

Write a function named `stretch` that accepts as a parameter an array of integers, and modifies it to be twice as large, replacing every integer with a pair of integers, each half the original. If a number in the original array is odd, then the first number in the new pair should be one higher than the second so that the sum equals the original number.

For example, if an array named `arr` stores the values `[18, 7, 4, 24, 11]`, the call of `stretch(arr)` should change `arr` to contain `[9, 9, 4, 3, 2, 2, 12, 12, 6, 5]` (the number 18 is stretched into the pair 9, 9, the number 7 is stretched into 4, 3, the number 4 is stretched into 2, 2, the number 24 is stretched into 12, 12, and 11 is stretched into 6, 5.)

Note: Because JavaScript integers are number types, dividing two integers which do not divide evenly returns the decimal value of the result instead of an integer (for example, 1 / 2 results in 0.5, not 0). Use `parseInt(a / b)` to parse the result into an integer if needed to solve this problem.

Function: Write a JavaScript function as described, not a complete program.
