The problem is it will give an error if you type anything that Python doesn't understand. Use a try except loop for that. Another issue is that it only evaluates one statement then stops. Also, quick warning: https://nedbatchelder.com/blog/201206/eval_really_is_dangerous.html

It has to be that way to make it so short. I know that if it doesn't understand it will give an error. Adding an except loop would completely ruin the point of the calculator.

Yea, I understand, just pointing out potential issues if you didn't mind the length.
