You can enter fractions in OneCalc pretty easily. 

  • Enter the integer portion
  • press [.] key
  • enter the numerator (at this point, the [.] key changes to [/] key)
  • press [/] key, and 
  • enter the denominator.

So, one-and-a-half is entered as: 1 dot 1 slash 2

After that, the [frac] / [dec] button toggles between displaying the value as decimal or as a fraction.

When fractions are displayed, touch in the number display area at the top of the screen and drag left or right to adjust the maximum denominator (which adjusts the accuracy of the fraction for irrational numbers).
