C Program For A Simple Calculator

This example program accepts two input numbers and performs an arithmetic operation such as addition, subtraction, division, multiplication and mod operation on them. The output is printed to the console.

Learn following C programming concepts before trying this example on your computer.

Program Definition

This calculator program is built using C arithmetic operators. The user is presented with a list of choices. Once the user input his or her choice that operation is performed.

Here is the list of operations presented to the users.

  1. Addition
  2. Subtraction
  3. Multiplication
  4. Division
  5. Modulo
  6. Close

The C calculator is implemented using the switch-case mechanism of C language.

            default:
            exit(0);
    }
}

Each arithmetic operator performs their respective operation on user inputs and return the results. Here is the list of important expressions used in the program.

result = a + b;
result = a - b;
result = a * b;
result = a / b;
result = a % b;

Output

The calculator program shows options when you run it. Enter two input numbers and then enter your choice of arithmetic operation. The output will be displayed on the screen.

ENTER TWO NUMBERS:
a=:33
b=:55
