Machine Problem in Python

  1. Create a calculator app
  2. The user will choose between the 4 math operations (Add, Subtract, Multiply and Divide)
  3. The application will ask for 2 numbers
  4. Display the result
  5. The application will ask again if the user wants to try again
  6. Use the appropriate Exception (ex: Invalid input such as text and zero division)

def calculator():
    validMenuOptions = ["+", "-", "*", "/", "e"]
