Calculator Program in C
In this topic, we will discuss how we write a calculator program in the C programming language. A Calculator is a small electronic device used to perform various arithmetic operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, percentage, etc. It makes our calculations easier and faster. It is a portable device that can use anywhere to perform simple mathematical operations. We use a scientific or sophisticated calculator in some situations, where we need to solve complex calculations like trigonometry functions, exponential operators, degrees, radians, log functions, hyperbolic functions etc. Let's discuss the various ways to create a calculator program in the C language.
Algorithm of Calculator Program
Step 1: Declare local variables n1, n2, res, opt. For example, where n1 and n2 take two numeric values, res will store results and opt variable define the operator symbols.
Step 2: Print the Choice (Addition, Subtraction, multiplication, division, etc.
Step 3: Enter the Choice
Step 4: Takes two numbers, n1 and n2
Step 5: Switch case jump to an operator selected by the user
Step 6: Store result into res variable.
Step 7: Display the operation result
Step 8: Exit from the program.
