Heres a program I made (i just learned turing today) for solving quadratic equations in math. Just enter the a, b, and c values and itll give u the roots. (y=ax**2+bx+[b]c[/b
WARNING!!!THE PROGRAM MAY HAVE AN ERROR IF THERE ARE NO REAL ROOTS

don't you mean
code: 
e:=(b**24*a*c)
if e<0 then
put "There are no real roots"

because otherwise (sqrt(e)) the program will crash.
its a good start, but now you should try to encorporate all of the roots. Its not that hard. Here's a hit
code: 
if e<0 then
e *= 1
flagi := true

and here you go  squareroot part becomes possitive, you just got to keep in mind that you have to add in "i" later on (but flagi is marked as true to remind you)

I had lots of stuff on my TI83.. you know how you used to have to do dozens of the same problems over and over with different numbers? yeah  just solve once for the variable values instead, and write down the function in TI
