Find roots of a Quadratic equation

Programme:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>
 
int main()
{
  float a, b, c, determinant, r1,r2, real, imag;
 
  printf("Enter coefficients a, b and c: ");
  scanf("%f%f%f",&a,&b,&c);
 
  determinant = b*b - 4*a * c;
 
  if (determinant>0)
  {
      r1= (-b+sqrt(determinant))/(2*a);
      r2= (-b-sqrt(determinant))/(2*a);
      printf("Roots are: %.2f and %.2f",r1 , r2);
  }
  else if (determinant==0)
  {
    r1 = r2 = -b/(2*a);
    printf("Roots are: %.2f and %.2f", r1, r2);
  }
  else
  {
    real= -b/(2*a);
    imag = sqrt(-determinant)/(2*a);
    printf("Roots are: %.2f+%.2fi and %.2f-%.2fi", real, imag, real, imag);
  }
  return 0;
}

Output:

Enter coefficients a, b and c: 2 6 8                                                                                        
Roots are: -1.50+1.32i and -1.50-1.32i
