It's 9(ER/IP) or (9*ER)/IP ; NOT ER/(IP*9)
Test your formula with ones: 1 ER in 1 IP should = ERA 9.00

hmm...it doesn't look like it makes a difference where I multiply.

The original equation was ambiguous. If it says ER/IP*9, that could mean to multiply the denominator by 9 before dividing, which is wrong.

I don't believe I got 3 posts out of this.
I guess when you plug it into Excel it doesn't really matter.
