Hey there! If someone could help me with my assignment, I would greatly appreciate it!

This is my problem from my professor:

Write a program (C++) that will read 5 sets of 3 values a, b, c from a file (quad.txt).

Create a function to calculate the discriminate and return either: "positive", "zero" or "negative"

In other words, the function will calculate the discriminate and determine if the discriminate is positive, zero and negative and return the correct string message.

Create a function that will calculate and display a, b, c and the roots or no roots based on the string message returned.

Read another set of a, b, c from a file.

Repeat this for 5 sets of a, b, c.

End

This is what I have so far (basically I have a program that does all of what is stated above, but I need it to call for the functions instead of calculating in main

Thanks guys!Code:// #include "stdafx.h" #include<iostream> //required for cout. endl. #include<fstream>//Required for ifstream, ofstream #include<cmath> using namespace std; int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[]) { //Declare variables double a, b, c, discriminant; float r1, r2; ifstream fin; ofstream report; //Open file and read first data line (a, b, c) fin.open("quad.txt"); if(fin.fail() ) //open failed { cerr<<"File quad.txt could not be opened"; exit(1); //end execution of the program } while(!fin.eof()) { fin >> a >> b >> c; //Calculate discriminant discriminant=((b*b)-4*a*c); cout << discriminant << endl; if(discriminant>0) { r1=(-1*b+sqrt(discriminant))/(2*a); r2=(-1*b-sqrt(discriminant))/(2*a); cout<<"r1="<<r1<<"\n"; cout<<"r2="<<r2<<"\n"; cout<<"there are two distinct roots"; } else if(discriminant==0) { r1=(-1*b)/(2*a); cout<<"r1="<<r1<<"\n"; cout<<"there is exactly one distinct real root"; } else { discriminant=-1*discriminant; cout<<"No real roots"; } cout<<"\n"; system("pause"); } return 0; }
