C Programming Calculator Project

One popular C programming project is building a simple calculator.

The calculator can perform basic arithmetic operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The code for the calculator can be as follows:


  • The #include <stdio.h> line includes the standard input/output library in the program.
  • The int main() function is the starting point of the program.
  • The char operator; line declares a variable called operator of the type char, which will store the arithmetic operator entered by the user.
  • The double firstNumber, secondNumber; line declares two variables called firstNumber and secondNumber of the type double, which will store the operands entered by the user.
  • The printf("Enter an operator (+, -, *, /): "); line prompts the user to enter an arithmetic operator.
  • The scanf("%c", &operator); line reads the operator entered by the user and stores it in the operator variable.
  • The printf("Enter two operands: "); line prompts the user to enter two operands.
  • The scanf("%lf %lf", &firstNumber, &secondNumber); line reads the operands entered by the user and stores them in the firstNumber and secondNumber variables.
  • The switch statement is used to perform different actions based on the value of the operator variable.
  • Inside the switch statement, there are several case labels for each arithmetic operator.
  • The corresponding action for each operator is performed inside the corresponding case block.
  • For example, if the operator is '+', the program will print the result of the addition of the two operands.
  • If an invalid operator is entered by the user, the program will print an error message.

This is a simple calculator project that can give you an idea on how to use basic arithmetic operations and take inputs using scanf function.
