The Egyptian Khafre Pyramid of Giza and squaring the circle with a circle with a diameter of 4 and a square with a width of 3:

“Squaring the circle with a Pyramid that has a square base width of 3 equal units of measure and a height of 2 equal units of measure”:
If the square base width of a Pyramid has 3 equal units of measure and the height of that Pyramid has 2 equal units of measure then the height of that Pyramid can be used as a radius of a circle to create a circle with an area that is equal to the circumference of that circle. If the diameter of a circle has 4 equal units of measure then the circumference of that circle is 12.566370614359172 and 12.566370614359172 reduced to 4 decimal places is 12.56. Pi = 3.141592653589793 and 3.141592653589793 multiplied by the radius of a circle with 2 equal units of measure is Tau = 6.283185307179586. If Tau - 6.283185307179586 is multiplied by 2 equal times then the area of the circle is 12.566370614359172 and 12.566370614359172 is the same value for the circumference of a circle with a radius of 2 equal units of measure. The square base width of this Pyramid has 3 equal units of measure and the perimeter of a square with a width of 3 equal units of measure is 12 equal units of measure. So the perimeter of this Pyramid with a square base width of 3 equal units of measure and height of 2 equal units of measure involves the perimeter of the square base width of the pyramid being close in measure to the circumference and area of a circle that has a radius equal in measure to the height of his Pyramid. Circumference of circle is 12.566370614359172 and area of circle is also 12.566370614359172. 12.566370614359172 reduced to 4 decimal places is 12.56 and the perimeter of a square with a width of 3 equal units of measure is 12 equal units of measure.
