This is too difficult for a beginner.

The conceptual answer is that you design for a large data item. Like maybe a string where each character is a digit of your number. Or perhaps a struct (class) whose data members are the number. Or maybe just a memory allocation where each bit is part of your number.

Then you write code to add/subtract/divide/multiply the data in your design. Then you overload the + - / * operators.


Lastly, all this work has already been done so you would just purchase large number code products and use those.
