How to find the size of the Earth and the dimensions of the Great Pyramid from the number 360.

1. Draw a great big circle 3600 miles in radius and find it's area in miles using the approximate for pi 22/7.

= 40,731,428.57 square miles.

2. Find the side of a square with the same area.

= 6382.117875 miles square.

3. Find the volume of a cube with a side 6382.117875 miles.

= 259,952,778,4 cubic miles

This is the volume of the Earth in cubic miles.

4. Find the radius of the Earth from formula; Volume = 4/3 pi radius cubed.

= 3958.618914 miles

5. Know that the perimeter of the Great Pyramid is 1 1/2 minute of 1 degree and there are 360 degrees in a circle so 1 degree.

= 69.11874294 miles

The base perimeter of the Great Pyramid divided by 60 minutes and halved to reach 1 1/2 minute.

= 3041.22469 imperial feet (926.96525 m)

Each side = 760.3061724 imperial feet (231.74131 m). 9123.674069 inches

Petrie mean for socket perimeter = 9125.9 inches gave south side 9123.9 inches.

I think that is pretty close.
