Summary: This programming tutorial explains the python program that solves the quadratic equation i.e. output the roots of the quadratic equation.

To solve a quadratic equation in Python, you can use the quadratic formula, which is:

x = [−b ± √(b2 − 4ac)]/2a

where a, b, and c are the coefficients of the quadratic equation in the form ax2 + bx + c = 0.

Here is an example of a Python function that takes in the coefficients a, b, and c as arguments and returns the roots of the quadratic equation:

import cmath

def solve_quadratic(a, b, c):
    # Calculate the discriminant
    discriminant = b**2 - 4*a*c

    # Calculate the two roots
    root1 = (-b + cmath.sqrt(discriminant)) / (2*a)
    root2 = (-b - cmath.sqrt(discriminant)) / (2*a)

    return root1, root2

# Test the function
roots = solve_quadratic(1, 5, 6)


((-2+0j), (-3+0j))

This will output the roots of the quadratic equation x2 + 5x + 6 = 0.
