Can someone help me to write a program to calculate the value of x for which f(x) = 0 zero for the general quadratic equation. Use the quadratic formula.

a.The program should have input boxes for a, b and c where a, b, and c are the coefficients of x2, x1 and x0

b.And out put the solutions for x.

c.if the solution contains the square root of a negative number then the program should print the message this equation has complex roots and out put the complex roots.

plz i'm really in need of help

Place a couple of TLabels, TEdits and one TButton on the form. In the TButton.OnClick event code the following:

Use the StrToFloat() to convert the TEdit.Text property to doubles. This will give you the a, b, c coefficients as numbers, so you can calculate with them.

Then comes the maths part, just like you would do on paper. You might need an if-then-else-if-then-else statement to check the various answer possibilities:

[code]

if D < 0 then

begin

// Do something

end else if D = 0 then

begin

// Do something else

end else { no need for another if-then, because if the program gets

this far, D is not smaller or equal to 0, thus greater than 0 }

begin

// Third do something

end;

[/code]

Finally use FloatToStr() to convert the results back to strings to show them using another few TLabels.
