import math error

When I type 'import math', it seems like my Python recognizes this library. Great. When I try to run the following script, I get an error, which suggests (to me) the math library is not working correctly.
Script:
import math
def main():
print "This program finds the real solutions to a quadratic"
print
a, b, c = input("Please enter the coefficients (a, b, c): ")
discRoot = math.sqrt(b * b - 4 * a * c)
root1 = (-b + discRoot) / (2 * a)
root2 = (-b - discRoot) / (2 * a)
print
print "The solutions are:", root1, root2
main()
Error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Users\Ryan\Desktop\QuadraticEquation.py", line 11, in <module>
main()
File "C:\Users\Ryan\Desktop\QuadraticEquation.py", line 5, in main
a, b, c = input("Please enter the coefficients (a, b, c): ")
File "<string>", line 1
(1,1,2):
^
SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing
The last line is line 11. It seems like I need this, but that's what's causing the error. Does anyone here have any idea what is wrong here?
Thanks.
