# Make Python Turtle Calculator With Code

Last updated June 8, 2023 by Jarvis Silva

In this tutorial I will show you how to make python turtle calculator, this calculator will have a gui and be able to perform basic arithmetic operations like addition, multiplication, subtraction and division

We will turtle module which is a GUI library for python, you can draw anything with this library, but we will use this library today to make a calculator in python.

## Python Code For Turtle Calculator

``````
import turtle

Answ_List = []

#Calculator Screen.
SIZE_X=500
SIZE_Y=500
turtle.setup(SIZE_X, SIZE_Y)
turtle.tracer(1,0)
t = turtle.Turtle()
tDel = t.clone()
t.hideturtle()
tDel.hideturtle()
t.left(90)

Above is the code for the python turtle calculator. Copy it and paste it in a python file and run it on your computer or use an online python compiler.

After running the code below is the output you should get, it will open a new window like below

Now if you tried clicking the numbers on the screen it won’t work. It is just a GUI you need to do all the operation in the command prompt or terminal. All the output and the history of your calculation will appear on the GUI.

I hope you found this tutorial helpful and interesting, do share it with your friends if they are interested in this program.
