In this article, I am going to explain how to find the solutions for the quadratic equation with the Python code. Please install python 3.8 from the link given below to run this code.

I prefer you to use atom text editor to type your code or to save the given code:

You can download the the Quadratic from GitHub using the given link:

#Quadratic equation

d_d = b**2-(4*a*c) #Assigning variables to make the program simpler
d = d_d**(1/2)  #Root of b square -4ac
sol1 = ((-b)+d)/(2*a)
sol2 = ((-b)-d)/(2*a)

#Check if solution exists

if d_d < 0:
   print('Solution exists in complex numbers')

#Return the solution if it exists in real numbers) 
   print('x = {0} or x = {1}'.format(sol1,sol2))  

Example Input:



x = -1.0 or x = -1.0

Code Explanation:

In this code, what we basically do is that, we get the 3 inputs from the user which are the values of a,b and c in a quadratic equation of the form ax2+bx+c.

Quadratic Equation in Python
Quadratic Equation

Code (Assignings):

  • The variable d_d is assigned the value of b2-4ac.
  • The variable d is assigned the value of root of d_d, that is root of b2-4ac.
  • Since an equation has 2 values ( ± ).
  • The value when used ‘+’ is assigned to the variable sol1.
  • Similarly, the value when used ‘-‘ is assigned to the variable sol2.


  • In a quadratic equation when the value of b2-4ac is less than 0, then solution is in complex numbers.
  • In order to test this, we are checking whether d_d is less than 0 or not.
  • If less than 0, the ‘if’ statement is executed where the string (‘Solution exists in complex numbers’) is executed. If not then the real number value is executed (else statement)
