Unformatted text preview: Assignment 6 1. Write a program to compute the roots of a quadratic equation ax 2 + bx + c = 0, where a, b, and c are real numbers. Structure your program as described below. A. The input file is named input_equations.txt which contains the three coefficients of an equation in each line as below: 1.0 3.0 2.0 1 0 4.84 1 0 1 You may create more inputs if you need. Open pico input_equations.txt 1.0 3.0 2.0 1 4.84 1 1 B. Write a function compute_roots that has five parameters: a : Coefficient of x2 b : Coefficient of x c : constant term *root1 : pointer to a double type variable *root2 : pointer to a double type variable The function updates the memory locations pointed to by root1 and root2 with the two roots of the quadratic equation, if they have realvalued roots. If the roots are complex, then the memory locations are left unchanged. The function returns a value 1 if the roots are realvalued, otherwise returns 0....
