write "Enter the coefficients of the formula:" read a,b,c if a,b,and c equal 0 write "infinite roots" exit if a and b equal 0 write "no roots" exit if a equals 0 root = c/b write "One root at x=", root exit . . . Testing Remember once you've translated your pseudocode into actual code that you need to test every possible case...
