      That could be a good candidate for market research.... go out into the
      street and stop random passers-by and ask

      "Could you tell me what this is ?"

      (-b + sqrt(b**2 - 4*a*c)) / ( 2*a)


      " ..and how about this ? "

      (/ (- (sqrt (- (* b b) (* 4 (* a c)))) b) (* 2 a))
