It should prompt the user for the values of a, b, and c, and should print out one of three possible answers. For example, if a = 2, b = -3, and c = -5, it should print out

There are two real roots: 2.5 and -1

If a = 2, b = -4, and c = 2, it should print out

There is a double real root: 1

If a = 1, b = 2, and c = 2, it should print out

There are two complex roots: -1 + 1i and -1 - 1i.
