This program will solve quadratic equations. It accepts coefficients of a quadratic equation from the user i.e. a, b and c and displays the roots. To compile the program name it quadratic_solver.cpp then type g++ -o quadratic_solver quadratic_solver.cpp You may need to use math.h like this: #include if you are using windows C++ programming software. (I tried it without the math.h and got an “undeclared identifier” error)

Simply speaking, polymorphism is the ability of something to be displayed in multiple forms. Let’s take a real life scenario; a person at the same time can perform several duties as per demand, in the particular scenario. Such as, a man at a same time can serve as a father, as a husband, as a son, and as an employee. So, single person possess different behaviors in respective situations. This is the real life example of polymorphism. Polymorphism is one of the important features of Object Oriented Programming (OOP).
