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)
Thank you...Jesus how could I have not though about this.
tk tsk tsk!!!! its + or - the square root;)
Notice the two solutions. ;)
doh! slap me for not completely reading it
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 :|
a right angle
