Hi everyone,

I recently started learning how Python works and thought I would set up a simple calculator which asks for three inputs:

1. The first number

2. Operator

3. The second number

This is my code:

5

*

5

= 10.0

What am I doing wrong?

I really hope I am not filling up the forum with too simple stuff seeing what others are discussing in these forums. If that is the case please feel free to delete. I am just here to learn!

Kind regards

I recently started learning how Python works and thought I would set up a simple calculator which asks for three inputs:

1. The first number

2. Operator

3. The second number

This is my code:

num1 = float(input ("Insert number: ")) operator = input ("What operation do you want to do: ") num2 = float(input ("And the second number: ")) if operator == "+" or "Plus" or "plus": print(num1 + num2) elif operator == "minus" or "Minus" or "-": print(num1 - num2) elif operator == "Multiplication" or "multiplication" or "*": print(num1 * num2) elif operator == "/" or "divide" or "Divide": print(num1 / num2) else: print("Sorry, operator not identified, please try again: ")It does not give a Syntax Error, but whenever I insert the two numbers along with an operator it only adds up the numbers. Example:

5

*

5

= 10.0

What am I doing wrong?
