I designed this "PROGRAM"!!! TO calculate the real roots of a quadratic equation....

but the compiler miracle C kept saying there's something wrong around the "if" word.... saying "unrecognised types in comparison"

it seem SO FINE to me.... what is wrong?!?!?!?!?!

#include <stdio.h>

#include <math.h>

int main(void)

{

/* Declare variables. */

double a,b,c,d,e,f;

printf("This program computes the real roots of a quadratic equations.\n");

printf("(recall that the general form of quadratic equation is ax^2+bx+c where a, b and c are canstants)\n");

printf("please enter the first coefficient.\n");

scanf("%f", &a);

printf("%f\n",a);

printf("please enter the second coefficient.\n");

scanf("%f", &b);

printf("%f\n",b);

printf("please enter the third coefficient.\n");

scanf("%f", &c);

printf("%f\n",c);

f=(b*b-4*a*c);

if(f<0)

printf("roots are not real.\n");

else

d=((-1)*b+sqrt(f))/(2*a);

e=((-1)*b-sqrt(f))/(2*a);

printf("%f, %f",d,e);

/* Exit program. */

return 0;

}
