# C++ Program to Find Roots of Quadratic Equation if/else

For a quadratic equation ax2+bx+c = 0 (where a, b and c are coefficients), it’s roots are given by following the formula.

The term b2-4ac is known as the discriminant of a quadratic equation. The discriminant tells the nature of the roots.

If the discriminant is greater than 0, the roots are real and different.
If the discriminant is equal to 0, the roots are real and equal.
If the discriminant is less than 0, the roots are complex and different.
