There is also a Javascript version of a Quadratic Equation Solver posted here:

Quadratic Equation Calculator

Since it is written in Javascript, the file can also be saved and used offline, if you are interested. - December 16th 2007, 12:10 AMjanvdl
Well I am currently expanding the tool to more than just a quadratic solver.

If anyone has any ideas, or is willing to help with the programming, then post it here or contact me, and let's make this a joint operation :D

What kind of a tool are you planning to turn it into?

I might be interested in helping with it.

Some of the existing industrial-strength root-finders for high-order equations already do that; it should just be a matter of extracting that particular code block. - December 16th 2007, 10:03 PMJhevon

I don't imagine cubics or quartics would be a big step up, I mean, there is one simple formula for each right? :D

Hold on, how could I only just have noticed it?!

Some cubics have three solutions, yet that formula will always only yield 1! :o

However in those cases it does work :) - December 17th 2007, 06:36 AMcolby2152

I just checked out your app. it’s pretty nice! I have two suggestions

It would be good if you could toggle between decimal answer and exact answers

and latex code for the solutions would also be great for people posting solutions on a forum. - December 17th 2007, 08:41 PMJhevon

Well I inserted a basic trig calculator and a decimal to binary converter :D

In the case of that cubic formula, I'm game to try it ;) :D (Crazy but willing)

Thanks for everyone's suggestions.
