    Pythagorean

    Just use the quadratic formula for equations of the form ax^2+bx+c=0.

    Namely, x = (-b + sqrt(b^2 - 4ac))/ (2a) and (-b - sqrt(b^2 - 4ac))/ (2a)

    Notice the two solutions.

    Pythagorean... isn't that

    (a*a)+(b*b)=(c*c) if it's a right curve or something? I don't know how to say in English :|
