PAT 2023 Online Calculator

Tried sitting the online practise PAT yesterday and using the digital scientific calculator felt like trying to walk uphill in roller-skates. It only gives answers in decimals and (I might just be being thick here) trying to input numbers in standard form is god-awful. Anyone else struggling with it or is this just a me problem?
does the calculator have an option to show answers as fractions?

to take the log of A with base B: (A) logxBasey (B)
to take the yth root of x: (x) yroot (y)

Just relax, I have a feeling that this year’s pat will include mostly algebraic analysis instead of purely calculating with actual numbers.
just received the email saying that we get to bring our own calculators for tomorrow!
presumably due to the technical difficulties the platform experienced today
this is incredibly good news i really struggled with the digital calculator
