# Introduction A quadratic equation is an equation of the form `ax²+bx+c=0`, where `a`, `b`, and `c` are constants. In this lab, we will learn how to write a program to find the roots of a quadratic equation. To solve the quadratic equation, we will use the following formula: `x = (-b ± sqrt(b² - 4ac)) / 2a` > Note: You need to create the file `~/project/main.c` yourself to practice coding and learn how to compile and run it using gcc. ```bash cd ~/project # create main.c touch main.c # compile main.c gcc main.c -o main # run main ./main ```
