1. Is it possible to input mathematical constants in cell/s using

functions in Excel ?.

For example : PI, e, Pythagoras constant, Omega Constant, Ramanujan - Soldner constant, Golden Ratio, Legendre's constant etc ?.

2. Will it be useful to create functions for inputting mathematical constants in excel spreadsheets (if not available) ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Akerkar!

I Hope you are well.

1. Yes, you can use a cell of spreadsheet to store a constant and use the reference of this cell as na argument of a function

Ex: Type

=PI() in A1

=Sqrt(A1) in A2

2. Yes, it is useful so you can simply the calculation of complex functions
