Use this basic calculator tool to quickly perform arithmetic operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

## Basic Calculator

### How to Use the Calculator

To use the calculator, enter a number in each of the two input fields for Value 1 and Value 2. Then choose the type of operation you want to perform: add, subtract, multiply, or divide, from the dropdown menu. Press the “Calculate” button, and you will see the result displayed in the Result field.

### How it Calculates the Results

The calculator takes the two numeric inputs provided by the user and applies the selected mathematical operation. The “add” option sums the values, “subtract” deducts the second value from the first one, “multiply” multiplies the two values, and “divide” divides the first value by the second one. The result of the operation is then shown in the Result field.

### Limitations of the Calculator

This basic calculator performs simple arithmetic operations with two numbers. It does not handle complex calculations, scientific functions, or non-numeric input. When using the divide operation, ensure the second value is not zero to avoid an error, as division by zero is undefined.
