These figures and calculations have nothing genuine to do with the Ancient Egyptian seked, and therefore have nothing to do with the Great Pyramid of Giza.

I respectfully suggest that you learn about the seked as told to us by the Egyptian Mathematical Papyri (EMP).
I recommend:
'Mathematics in the Time of the Pharaohs' Richard J. Gillings. 1972.
'Ancient Egyptian Science, a Source Book. Vol 3. Ancient Egyptian Mathematics' Marshall Clagett. 1999.
'Architecture and Mathematics in Ancient Egypt' Corinna Rossi. 2003.
