# Python program to use arithmetic operators for carrying out simple operations

In this example, we will write a simple program that takes input from the user and perform a basic arithmetic operation in Python. To better understand this example, make sure you have knowledge of the following tutorials:-

**Source Code:**

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 | a = float(input("Input first number: ")) b = float(input("Input second number: ")) c = a+b # addition d = a*b # multiplication e = a/b # division f = a-b # subtraction g = b % a # remainder h = b ** a # exponential print("sum = {addition}\n" "subtraction = {subtraction}\n" "product = {product}\n" "division = {division}\n" "Modulus = {modulus}\n" "Exponential = {exponent}" . format(addition=c, product=d, division=e,subtraction=f,modulus=g,exponent=h)) |

The output of the above program is:-

Input first number: 15

Input second number: 6

sum = 21.0

subtraction = 9.0

product = 90.0

division = 2.5

Modulus = 6.0

Exponential = 470184984576.0

Input second number: 6

sum = 21.0

subtraction = 9.0

product = 90.0

division = 2.5

Modulus = 6.0

Exponential = 470184984576.0

In this program, the user input is taken using input() function which takes input as a string. But as we are doing the calculation part, we need the input to be in float. So, we did the type-conversion using float() function.

The input from the user is taken as a and b and basic operations are performed and result id displayed using print with the formatting of the data.
