The simple calculator created by manually adding each button and creating different functions for each unique button is a tedious task. It is not the best practice. Here we will see a dynamic calculator program that can be easily scaled. Let us create a simple and easy GUI calculator that can do basic math operations like multiplication, division, square root, addition, and subtraction, even more operations can be added, and according to it changes can be made in the function.
