Another Excel question <grin>

This should be the last one. Is there a function or formula to find the square root of a number with Excel?

Thanks

Was looking at some sabr pages and they were discussing RAA is proven to be the most valuable way to find a pitcher's winning percentage. So I took a little time to figure it out. Best I've seen is a 55% which seems low, but anywho.

I always thought the best way to figure a pitcher's winning percentage is :
