You could do this:
In[2]:= Solve[y == a x^2 + b x + c, x]
Out[2]=
\!\({{x -> \(\(-b\) + \ at \(b\^2 - 4\ a\ c + 4\ a\ y\)\)\/\(2\ a\)}, {x -> \
\(-\(\(b + \ at \(b\^2 - 4\ a\ c + 4\ a\ y\)\)\/\(2\ a\)\)\)}}\)
(sorry about the formating). Although in this case, you get something
similar to the quadratic equation for answers, so there are really no A,
B, and C's.
