Not to be contrary, but I recently learned some things and now have three favorite values for the cubit. Cubit #1 has a over all value of 1 having 7 palms 28 digits: Cubit #2 has a value of 1 having no palms and 27 digits: Cubit #3 has a value of 1 having 6 palms with 24 digits. The perimeter G1 is 1760 cubits the height is 280 cubits. The Kings Chamber length 20 cubits is 1/88 the perimeter, the Grand Gallery horizontal roof length is 1/22 the perimeter, the length of the Grand Gallery floor to the Great Step is 1/20 the perimeter.

All you have to do is prove they used pi in the form of 3 + 1/7. Given the 11/14 run rise of the 5 1/2 seked gives the same results.
[www.scirp.org]
The dimensions of Khufu’s pyramid given in royal cubits. The pyramid angle is 51° 50’ or 5½ palms per cubit rise. On the right is an aerial view of Khufu’s pyramid from the northwest showing the concavity which creates an eight-sided effect best seen here on the monument’s west face.

Fibonacci pi, 3.1418181818 = 864/275 = 3 + 1/10 + 1/25 + 1/550 which is if they had used it would be the way Ancient Egyptian would have noted this value.

756 x 1/2 = 378, 378 / (11/14) = 481 1/11
I believe the base of the pyramid is 440 cubits, height 280 cubits. Once the cubit is fully understood Petrie’s estimates become secondary.

The Babylonian value of pi has the same ratio to (4 / (14/11)) as the casing to socket base numbers of 175/176 .

You might have something there, but I am not convinced the Ancient Egyptians used pi in the same manner we do. Now I could be wrong, but I don't believe there is a single problem involving circles and circular geometric calculation noted in the papyri where they did not use the (8/9 d)^2 formula from problem #50 Rhind Mathematical Papyrus. The written solution says, subtract 1/9 of of the diameter which leaves 8 khet. The area is 8 multiplied by 8, or 64 setat. The 256/81 you are calling Egyptian pi was extrapolated from (8/9 d)^2 using our concepts and reasoning not theirs.

Regards,
Jacob
