# Python Program to Make a Simple Calculator

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.

## Example: Simple Calculator by Using Functions

``````# Program make a simple calculator

# This function adds two numbers
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.")
print("2.Subtract")
print("3.Multiply")
print("4.Divide")

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

# check if choice is one of the four options
if choice in ('1', '2', '3', '4'):
num1 = float(input("Enter first number: "))
num2 = float(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))

# check if user wants another calculation
# break the while loop if answer is no
next_calculation = input("Let's do next calculation? (yes/no): ")
if next_calculation == "no":
break

else:
print("Invalid Input")``````

Output

```Select operation.
