Using the Egyptian method of calculating the area of a circle.

100.0000 imperial inches representing 1 solar days
11.1111 one ninth of this
88.8889 Egyptian method of calculating circle area using 8/9 diameter
7901.2346 square imperial inches
800.0000 units of 9.87654321 square inches
3.1605 Version of Pi being used 3.160493827 This is 256/81

33.3333 imperial inches representing 0.333333333 solar days
3.7037 one ninth of this
29.6296 Egyptian method of calculating circle area using 8/9 diameter
877.9150 square imperial inches
88.8889 units of 9.87654321 square inches

30.0000 imperial inches representing 0.3 solar days
3.3333 one ninth of this
26.6667 Egyptian method of calculating circle area using 8/9 diameter
711.1111 square imperial inches
72.0000 units of 9.87654321 square inches

The Egyptian version of Pi is used in the calculation and this version is used possibly because the unit of translation is actually Pi squared being 3.125 x 256/81 = 9.87654321.

This is exactly the same as at Stonehenge where the versions of Pi are 1760/560 x 1632/520(THOM pi).

9.87654321 has the wow factor and is being used for aesthetic reasons as well as high accuracy being closer to real pi squared than 22/7 squared.
