Problem

The roots of $Ax^2 + Bx + C = 0$ are $r$ and $s$. For the roots of $x^2+px +q =0$

to be $r^2$ and $s^2$, $p$ must equal:

$\textbf{(A)}\ \frac{B^2 - 4AC}{A^2}\qquad  \textbf{(B)}\ \frac{B^2 - 2AC}{A^2}\qquad  \textbf{(C)}\ \frac{2AC - B^2}{A^2}\qquad \\ \textbf{(D)}\ B^2 - 2C\qquad  \textbf{(E)}\ 2C - B^2$

Solution
