In this post, we will develop a Java program for the quadratic equation. It will find the roots of the given quadratic equation.

A quadratic equation is an equation of the second degree, meaning it contains at least one term that is squared. The standard form of the quadratic equation is ax² + bx + c = 0 where a, b and c are real and a !=0, x is an unknown variable. The nature of roots is determined by the discriminant.

**Quadratic formula Java**

The discriminant of the Quadratic equation is calculated as b²-4*a*c.

`discriminant(d) = b² - 4*a*c`

The nature of the roots are given as,

=> If discriminant>1 then the roots are real and different`=>`

If discriminant=0 then the roots are real and equal

=> discriminant<1 then the roots are complex and different

For the quadratic equation ax² + bx + c = 0, if we denote the discriminant as d, then their roots

If d>1 then the roots are real and different

root1 = (-b + √d)/2a

root2 = (-b – √d)/2a

If d=0 then both roots are -b/2a

If d<1 then roots are complex and different

root1 = -b/2a + i (√d/2a)

root2 = -b/2a – i (√d/2a)

## Java program to find roots of Quadratic Equation

import java.util.Scanner; public class QuadraticProgram { public static void main(String[] args) { // declare variables int a, b, c; int desc ; int root1, root2 ; int realPart, imaginaryPart; // create Scanner class object // to read inputs Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in); // read inputs System.out.print("Enter coefficients " + "(a, b, and c values): "); a = scan.nextInt(); b = scan.nextInt(); c = scan.nextInt(); // display Quadratic equation System.out.print("The quadratic equation: "); System.out.format("%d*x^2 + %d*x + %d = 0\n", a, b, c); // calculate discriminant desc = (b*b) - (4*a*c); // find roots if(desc > 1) { // both roots are real and different root1=(-b+(int)Math.sqrt(desc))/2*a; root2=(-b-(int)Math.sqrt(desc))/2*a; // display roots System.out.println("Roots are = "+ root1 + ", "+ root2); } else if(desc == 0) { // both roots are real and equal root1=(-b+(int)Math.sqrt(desc))/2*a; root2 = root1; // display roots System.out.println("Roots are = "+ root1+ ", "+ root2); } else { // roots are complex and different realPart = -b/(2*a); imaginaryPart=(int)Math.sqrt(desc)/(2*a); System.out.format("root1 = %d + i(%d)\n", realPart, imaginaryPart); System.out.format("root2 = %d - i(%d)\n", realPart, imaginaryPart); } // close Scanner class object scan.close(); } }

The output for the different test cases are:-

Enter coefficients (a, b, and c values): 1 -1 -6

The quadratic equation: 1*x^2 + -1*x + -6 = 0

Roots are = 3, -2

Enter coefficients (a, b, and c values): 1 0 -25

The quadratic equation: 1*x^2 + 0*x + -25 = 0

Roots are = 5, -5

Enter coefficients (a, b, and c values): 1 -12 36

The quadratic equation: 1*x^2 + -12*x + 36 = 0

Roots are = 6, 6

Enter coefficients (a, b, and c values): 1 4 5

The quadratic equation: 1*x^2 + 4*x + 5 = 0

root1 = -2 + i(0)

root2 = -2 – i(0)
