Question: How to do the calculations involving fractions?

Answer:

NAT questions will require answers only in decimal form, therefore, there will be no provision for fractions.

Answer:

In the calculator, the complex numbers cannot be represented. However, questions related to any area related to complex number such as power systems or any other area, can be solved using the virtual calculator of GATE 2019. 

Question: How to carry out Matrix operations like inverse, transpose etc?

Answer:

Since matrix calculations cannot be done in the calculator, the candidates will have to manually do it.
