A simple program to calculate quadratic equation with.

Input MUST have the format:
AX2 + BX + C = 0

EXAMPLE: input the equation
2X2 + 4X -30 = 0 as:

A= 2 B= 4 C= -30

The answers for AX2 + BX + C = 0 should be 3 and -5.



bool solver(float a,float b, float c, float &x1, float &x2)
	float delta = sqrt( (b*b) - (4*a*c) );
    if (!a)  return false; 
    x1 = ( -b + delta)/(2*a);
    x2 = ( -b - delta)/(2*a);
	return true;

int main()
	float a=2,
 	printf("a = ");
	scanf("%f", &a);
	printf("b = ");
	scanf("%f", &b);
	printf("c = ");
	scanf("%f", &c);
float x1,x2;
if ( solver(a, b ,c, x1, x2) ) 	printf("x1=%f\nx2=%f\n",x1,x2);
return 0;

About the Author

About me:
I attended programming college and I have a degree in three most famous and successful programming languages. C/C++, Visual Basic and Java. So i know i can code. And there is a diploma hanging on my wall to prove it.
I am a professional, I am paid tons of cash to teach or do software development. I am roughly 30 years old .

I hold lectures in programming. I have also coached students in C++, Java and Visual basic.

In my spare time i do enjoy developing computer games, and i am developing a rather simple flight simulator game
in the c++ programming language using the openGL graphics libray.

I've written hundreds of thousands of code syntax lines for small simple applications and games.
