Java Program to Make a Simple Calculator using Switch Case

Here is a Java program to make a simple calculator using switch case statement which perform addition, subtraction, multiplication and division or two numbers.

Given two integers and an arithmetic operator, we have to perform the specific arithmetic operation on given integer operands using a switch case statement and print the result on screen.

Java program for simple calculator using switch statement

In this java program, we first takes two integer operands and an arithmetic operator as input from user. The operator is stored in a character variable 'op'. This calculator only support addition, subtraction, multiplication and division(+, - , * and /) operators and for any other operator it prints error message on screen saying "Unsupported Operation". It uses switch case statement to select an arithmetic operation based on the 'op' variable.


import java.util.Scanner;

public class Calculator {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws myException {
        int a, b;
        char op;

        Scanner scanner;
        scanner = new Scanner(;
        // Take two numbers as input from user
        System.out.println("Enter Two Integers");
        a = scanner.nextInt();
        b = scanner.nextInt();

        // Taking operator as input from user
        System.out.println("Enter an Operator");
        op =;

        switch (op) {
        case '+':
            System.out.format("%d + %d = %d\n", a, b, a + b);
        case '-':
            System.out.format("%d - %d = %d\n", a, b, a - b);
        case '*':
            System.out.format("%d * %d = %d\n", a, b, a * b);
        case '/':
            System.out.format("%d / %d = %d\n", a, b, a / b);
            System.out.println("ERROR: Unsupported Operation");
Enter Two Integers
10 4
Enter an Operator
10 + 4 = 14
Enter Two Integers
4 7
Enter an Operator
4 * 7 = 28
Enter Two Integers
2 3
Enter an Operator
ERROR: Unsupported Operation
