Can someone please explain it saying that

warning C4700: uninitialized local variable 'd' used?

Enhance the Quadratic program in the following manner. If the user enters a

valid set of coefficients (the else” case compute the value )of the discriminant d, defined as:

d = b^2 - 4ac

If the value of the discriminant is negative, inform the user that the roots are complex. If the

value is non-negative, inform the user the roots are not complex. Compile and run the program

multiple times. Verify the program acts as it should.
