Java Programming | Creating a Simple Calculator


This is a tutorial for creating a simple calculator in java. The program takes two number along with operator, calculates result and prints it. The program is extendable. Go enjoy the program. Lets begin……

Program for simple calculator in java.

//import Scanner as we require it.
import java.util.Scanner;

// the name of our class its public
public class SimpleCalculator {
	//void main
		public static void main (String[] args)
			//declare int and char
			int a,b,result=0;
			char c;

			//Declare input as scanner
			Scanner input = new Scanner(;

			//Take inputs
			 System.out.println("Enter no. :");
			 a = input.nextInt();
			 System.out.println("Enter no. :");
		     b = input.nextInt();
			 System.out.println("Enter Operator :");
			 String st =;
			 c = st.charAt(0);

			 //add a switch statement
			 case '+':
				 result = a+b;
				 System.out.println("Result = "+result);
			 case '-':
				 result = a-b;
				 System.out.println("Result = "+result);
			 case 'x':
				 result = a*b;
				 System.out.println("Result = "+result);
			 case '/':
				 result = a/b;
				 System.out.println("Result = "+result);
				System.out.println("Syntax Error");


Enter no. :
Enter no. :
Enter Operator :
Result = 648

How does it work

  1. You enter two numbers.
  2. You enter operator.
  3. The conditional statement decides the formula and calculates result and prints it.

Extending it

The program can be extended. You can use more numbers or other functions of calculator like square, root,trigonometry, etc to expand it. Go ahead…..


  1. Import the Scanner.
  2. Declare the class as public
  3. Add the void main function
  4. Add system.out.println() function with the message to enter numbers.
  5. Declare input as Scanner.
  6. Take the inputs and save it in variables.
  7. Add a Switch Statement.
  8. Add the formula to calculate result.
  9. Add system.out.println() function to print the word.

At the end.

You learnt creating the Java program for Simple Calculator. So now enjoy the program.
