Exercise 1 - Creating the Calculator Application

A calculator takes the inputs from the user and helps to perform arithmetic and mathematical calculations. Using HTML and CSS, you can design a professional interface of a calculator. The numbers and the operators are displayed as buttons. You need to click the required buttons and the result is displayed. Events are triggered when the buttons are clicked. The event handlers invoke the user-defined functions written in JavaScript.

In this exercise, you will learn how to create a simple calculator application in JavaScript. You will perform two tasks:

  • Task 1 - You will download the Visual Studio Code workspace (Calculator) from the Intranet and create a new HTML page named Calc.html in the Calculator workspace.
