**Formula**

**SQRT function**: **=SQRT(cell containing the number or the number)**

**POWER function: ****=POWER(cell containing the number or the number,1/2)**

**Setting up the Data**

- We will set up the data as shown in
**figure 2** **The numbers whose square root we intend to find are in Cell A4 to Cell A10**- The results will be returned in
**Column B**
