Python Program to Make a Simple Calculator

Best Trail Camera Pro October 19, 2018

In this example you will learn to create a simple calculator that can add, subtract, multiply or divide depending upon the input from the user.

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of following Python programming topics:

    Python Functions
    Python Function Arguments
    Python User-defined Functions

Source Code: Simple Caculator by Making Functions

# Program make a simple calculator that can add, subtract, multiply and divide using functions

# This function adds two numbers
def add(x, y):
   return x + y

# This function subtracts two numbers
def subtract(x, y):
   return x - y

# This function multiplies two numbers
def multiply(x, y):
   return x * y

# This function divides two numbers
def divide(x, y):
   return x / y

print("Select operation.")

# Take input from the user
choice = input("Enter choice(1/2/3/4):")

num1 = int(input("Enter first number: "))
num2 = int(input("Enter second number: "))

if choice == '1':
   print(num1,"+",num2,"=", add(num1,num2))

elif choice == '2':
   print(num1,"-",num2,"=", subtract(num1,num2))

elif choice == '3':
   print(num1,"*",num2,"=", multiply(num1,num2))

elif choice == '4':
   print(num1,"/",num2,"=", divide(num1,num2))
   print("Invalid input")


Select operation.
Enter choice(1/2/3/4): 3
Enter first number: 15
Enter second number: 14
15 * 14 = 210

In this program, we ask the user to choose the desired operation. Options 1, 2, 3 and 4 are valid. Two numbers are taken and an if...elif...else branching is used to execute a particular section. User-defined functions add(), subtract(), multiply() and divide() evaluate respective operations.

Hi @Best Trail Camera Pro,

I think, you posted this in the wrong place. This is a community about Atlassian products.
