Let’s write a program that would work as a basic calculator. Our calculator would help us solve basic arithmetic functions like:
def add(a,b): return a + b def subtract(a,b): return a - b # Function to multiply two numbers def multiply(a,b): return a * b # Function to divide two numbers def divide(a , b): return a / b num1 = 1 num2 = 2 print(num1, "+", num2, "=", add(num1, num2)) print(num1, "-", num2, "=", subtract(num1, num2)) print(num1, "*", num2, "=", multiply(num1, num2)) print(num1, "/", num2, "=", divide(num1, num2))
We created four different functions:
add()
: As the name suggests, this function adds two variables.
subtract()
: This function subtracts variable one from variable two.
multiply()
: This multiplies the two variables.
divide()
: Variable one is divided by the second variable upon calling this function.
Next, we took two variables, num1
and num2
. Each variable has been assigned two integers.
Upon printing the functions above, we get the result of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing num1
and num2
.
In order to play around with the calculator, you can change the values for
num1
andnum2
.
