Objective:

• You will create a program that calculates the quadratic formula from given user input

Competencies:

• 016 Demonstrate job-specific mathematics skills.
• 053 Write a program that uses variables and constants.
• 054 Write a program accepting user input.

Resources:

Directions:

1. Create a program named quad.py
2. Prompt the user (ask the user for input) for variables a, b, and c
• Don't forget to convert if necessary
3. Calculate both real solutions using the quadratic formula (look it up on the internets)
• There are two roots to calculate
• You should have two variables x1 and x2 as the two solutions to the quadratic formula
• Exponentiation: x**y (x to the y power)
• Square root is the same as taking something to the power 0.5
• Remember to use parentheses
• Watch out for order of operations!
4. Print the quadratic equation: a*x^2 + b*x + c = 0
• Be sure to print a, b, c using the variables, so that the equation has the original inputs
5. Print the two solutions of the quadratic formula

CHALLENGE: check if the solutions are real or imaginary

Examples:

```Please enter a: 1

The roots are:
-1.0
-2.0
