This is an extract from the Encyclopedia Brittanica.

'it is the largest of the three, the length of each side at the base averaging 755.75 feet (230 metres) and its original height being 481.4 feet (147 metres). The middle pyramid was built for Khafre (Greek: Chephren), the fourth of the eight kings of the 4th dynasty; the structure measures 707.75 feet (216 metres) on each side and was originally 471 feet (143 metres) high. The southernmost and last pyramid to be built was that of Menkaure (Greek: Mykerinus), the fifth king of the 4th dynasty; each side measures 356.5 feet (109 metres), and the structure’s completed height was 218 feet (66 metres). '

I know that Petrie's measurements give 755.75 to within a whisher and have no idea where the other two measurements come from to give

755.75
707.75
356.5

But it is not unreasonable to suggest the smallest pyramid to fit with the others could be restated as 55.75 and this gives a difference betwwen Giza of 400 feet.

The difference between the middle and Giza is 48 feet.

I have suggested the eclipse year is 352 days being 29.333r days x 12 and 5 of these period make 176 days the base of the GP if 10 cubit units are used.

How accurate are the second two measurements?

The model does not take much finding.
