    problem for amateur lol

    hello, im very new to programming and have brought the book programming in c the third edition but am facing big troubles being a beginner.
    i was wondering if you could help me identify the problem in the following statement and provide me with some indication why the statement is incorrect.

    scanf("d",value);

    thanks
