Could you link to where you are obtaining that number please? I'm seeing 40,030 km and 40,008

So? If you divide 40 by 3.3 you get 12.12??

Where did they state that? Yet it doesn't as that number is not correct as the realization the earth is not a perfect sphere was not realized until the time of Newton who proposed it but it was not measured until many centuries later.

Used by who and how would they have determined the 40,000 number?
