##### ► Python program to do basic calculations

Steps followed:
1. take two numbers and operation user want to perform as input from user
2. validate user input by converting to integer
3. check if input operation is correct
4. perform operation based on given opp and print result

Program
``````#python program to do basic calculations

#take two numbers and operation user want to perform as input from user
num1 = input("Enter first number: ")
num2 = input("Enter second number: ")
opp = input("Enter opperation you want to perform\ntype + for addition\ntype - for subtraction\ntype * for multiplication\ntype / for division\n: ")

try:
num1=float(num1)
num2=float(num2)

# check if input operation is correct
if opp not in ("+","-","*","/"):
print("invalid operation")
else:
#perform operation based on given opp
if opp == "+":
result = num1 + num2
elif opp == "-":
result = num1 - num2
elif opp == "*":
result = num1 * num2
else:
if num2 == 0:
print("can not perform division as divisor is 0")
else:
result = num1 / num2
print("result for %0.2f %s %0.2f is %0.2f"%(num1,opp,num2,result))

except:
print("---error---")
