Golang : Quadratic example



Tags : golang quadratic math-square-root parsefloat

Here is a simple tutorial on how to perform quadratic calculation with Golang. This program accepts two floating point values from the command line and calculate the roots using quadratic formula. It also checks for the input values to see if they are floats or not. Here you go! package main import ( "fmt" "math" "os" "strconv" ) func main() { b, err := strconv.ParseFloat(os.Args[1], 10) if err != nil { fmt.Println("First input parameter must be of type float") os.Exit(1) c, err := strconv.ParseFloat(os.Args[2], 10) if err != nil { fmt.Println("Second input parameter must be of type float") os.Exit(1) fmt.Println("b : ", b) fmt.Println("c : ", c) // calculate the roots of the polynomial // x^2 + bx + c using the quadratic formula discriminant := b*b - 4.0*c d := math.Sqrt(discriminant) fmt.Printf("%0.6f\n", ((-b + d) / 2.0)) fmt.Printf("%0.6f\n", ((-b - d) / 2.0)) Sample output: $./quadratic -1.0 -1.0 b : -1 c : -1 1.618034 -0.618034 $ ./quadratic -3.0 2.0 b : -3 c : 2 2.000000 1.000000 References: https://www.socketloop.com/references/golang-strconv-parsefloat-function-example https://www.socketloop.com/tutorials/golang-how-to-check-if-input-from-os-args-is-integer https://www.socketloop.com/tutorials/golang-get-command-line-arguments
