New submission from mike dalrymple <linmike2 at msn.com>:

Downloaded Python 3.9.0
Documentation indicates:
Return the square root of x.

When I use in IDLE shell 3.9.0, I receive error:
>>> sqrt(25)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#11>", line 1, in <module>
NameError: name 'sqrt' is not defined

What is the problem?
