I had this same program im not going to tell you who i be tho ;) Ok, its very simple you have the main idea for your equasion but try taking out the parenthasies(sp) like this b*b-4*a*c now, tell me whats wrong and why it wont work or what it is doing. heres a lil more that might help

try putting the cout for the discriminant above the if statements like this
cout<<"The discriminant =<<z<<endl;

if(z<0)
cout<<"blabla
";
if (z>0)
cout<<"blabla
";
//have else be if z=0 i had a problem until i did this

The only thing I can see is that you should fix your if statement. Remember that even if the expressions inside the if statements seem to be exclusive, you should make sure they are, just to be safe. I found that having several plain if statements in a row in this manner can cause some odd bugs to appear.
If that wording wasn't vey clear, try this: If z is greater than zero, do something. OTHERWISE, check if z is less than zero and do something. OTHERWISE, do something else. The OTHERWISE is the key.

Hopefully that's your problem. I don't see anything wrong with the code other than that. If it's still not working, try posting some more code and more information about what it's doing.

Hi EnKRYpTeD this is your corrected code.
```if(z<0)
cout<<"blabla
";
[color=blue]else if (z>0) [/color]
cout<<"blabla
";
else
cout<<"blabla";

```

Malkiri is has said about your code which I have write in blue. Look at there and think about if Z is -1 then what gose wrong and where in your code ?  I have fix this problem but I want to know that you have understand this or not so explain it to me.
