This example shows how to easily resolve second degree equations using PySymbian.

## Example Code

#Equations.py

#(c) Rafael Tavares 2008

import appuifw

from math import sqrt

op = 1

#Calculate

while (op!=2):

a = float(appuifw.query(u"A:", "text"))

b = float(appuifw.query(u"B:", "text"))

c = float(appuifw.query(u"C:", "text"))

#Delta

delta=b*b-4*a*c

#The equation answer is not a real number

if (delta<0):

appuifw.note(u"Equation answers are not real numbers", "error")

#The equation is possible

else:

x1=((b*-1)+sqrt(delta))/(2*a)

x2=((b*-1)-sqrt(delta))/(2*a)

continueoption=appuifw.popup_menu([u"Delta= "+u"%.0f" % (delta), u"x'= "+u"%.1f" % (x1), u"x''= "+u"%.1f" % (x2), u"Quit"])

if (continueoption==3): # Quit selected

op = 2
