 $nr1 = floatval($_POST['nr1']);
 $nr2 = floatval($_POST['nr2']);
 $opr = trim(strip_tags($_POST['opr']));

 //calculate according to $opr
 if($opr =='+') $res = $nr1 + $nr2;
 else if($opr =='-') $res = $nr1 - $nr2;
 else if($opr =='*') $res = $nr1 * $nr2;
 else if($opr =='/') $res = $nr1 / $nr2;

 $res = $nr1 .' '. $opr .' '. $nr2 .' = '. number_format($res, 2);
}
