    The below code is a calculator in plain C. It does not take into account the operability of bodmas but just one operation at a time.

    The main thing in the source code below in the scanf which scans the input as number symbol number just as in case of normal calculator.
    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    
    float add(float,float);
    float sub(float,float);
    float product(float,float);
    float divide(float,float);
    
    void main()
    {
    	float n1,n2;
    	char sym,choice;
    	printf("This Program is a program for calculator\n\n");
    	scanf("%f%c%f",&n1,&sym,&n2);
    	if(sym=='+')
    		printf("\n%f",add(n1,n2));
    	if(sym=='-')
    		printf("\n%f",sub(n1,n2));
    	if(sym=='*')
    		printf("\n%f",product(n1,n2));
    	if(sym=='/')
    		printf("%f",divide(n1,n2));
    	printf("\nDo you wish to continue[y/n]");
    	scanf("%s",&choice);
    	if(choice=='y'||choice=='Y')
    		main();
    }
    
    float add(float m1,float m2)
    {
    	return(m1+m2);
    }
    
    float sub(float m1,float m2)
    {
    	return(m1-m2);
    }
    
    float product(float m1,float m2)
    {
    	return(m1*m2);
    }
    
    float divide(float m1,float m2)
    {
    	return(m1/m2);
    }

    I would love to but I see no topics on your forums and so how you know people hate what you write. I also had something similar thinking when I started but thanks to G4EF that made me think otherwise.

    #include <stdio.h><br>
    #include <conio.h><br>
    main()<br>
    {<br>
      float n1,n2,s,d,p,q;<br>
      clrscr();<br> 
      printf("\n Enter two nos");<br>
      scanf("%f%f"&n1,&n2);<br>
      s=n1+n2;<br>
      d=n1-n2;<br>
      p=n1*n2;<br>
      q=n1/n2;<br>
      printf("\n Sum %f",s);<br>
      printf("\n Difference %f",d);<br>
      printf("\n Product %f",p);<br>
      printf("\n Quotient %f",q);<br>
      getch();<br>
     return(0);<br>
    }

    Hy, I begun studying c++ a few days ago and I came across this topic and decided to write a similar program in c++...

    The code was a bit inspired from the original c calculator :)

    Anyway, I would love to read your feedback ^^

    Code:
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <cstdio>
    #include <iostream>
    
    
    using namespace std;
    
    double x;
    double y;
    double multi(double x, double y);
    double divi(double x, double y);
    double sub (double x, double y);
    double add(double x, double y);
    
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
        char a, z;
        for(;;)
    {
        cin>> x; cin>> z; cin>>y;
    if (z=='*'){cout<<"=" <<multi (x,y)<< endl;}
    if (z=='/'){cout<<"=" <<divi (x,y)<< endl;}
    if (z=='-'){cout<<"=" <<sub (x,y)<< endl;}
    if (z=='+'){cout<<"=" <<add (x,y)<< endl;}
    
    cout<<"Would you like to do another operation? [y/n]";
    cin>>a;
    if 
    (a!='y')
    {break;}
    }
        system("PAUSE");
        return EXIT_SUCCESS;
    }
    double multi (double x, double y)
    {return x*y;}
    double divi (double x, double y)
    {return x/y;}
    double sub (double x, double y)
    {return x-y;}
    double add (double x, double y)
    {return x+y;}
    
    
    Cheers!

    You are using a Cpp compiler and try a C compiler and it would work. For some old TC compiler just renaming the file to .c would compile it for you
