Suggestion: include Vieta's formula for quadratic functions chapter and host book source using git

Ian
Hello! As you might know there is a Vieta's formula to quickly check if zeros of a 2nd degree polynomial you found are correct. What do you think about it? Would you include/mention it in 4th edition?

Have you considered to store book's source code using git? It would be much easier to track changes and collaborate in case of typos (accept other's pull requests/fixes). Example of opensource book hosted on GitHub: https://github.com/progit/progit2

Thank you for the book!

Hi Ian!

That sounds like a great extension question!

We have been approached about git in the past, but neither Jeff nor I have the time at the moment to get that going.

Many thanks!

Carl
