The GP base is designed against a circle of radius 220 cubits and the skehed defines the height as 280 cubits against a radius of 220 cubits of the inscribed circle within the GP base.
This relationship 280/220 can be restated as n/(n-1) by subtracting 220 from 280 to give 60
280 / 60 = 4.666r
220 / 60 = 3.666r
The sekhed is 4.666r/3.666r.
The sequence can be continued
280 plus 60 = 340 and this is Thom's megalithic system
340 / 60 = 5.666r Thom base 17
280 / 60 = 4.666r base 7 the sekhed numerator
220 / 60 = 3.666r base 11 the sekhed denominator
the next unit is 400 / 60 = 6.666r and this is the base 100 system using 396.
the system is sexagesimal so Babylonian in nature.
Because 3.666r is built into the ratio as the denominator and this is 10 barleycorns the eclipse is represented in the ratio as 40 barleycorns being 18.666r/14.666r.
So 14.666r will always be found in the design of the GP
Using decimal maths the Sekhed is 14/11 = 1.27272727r and again this translates using n/(n-1) as 1.26 x 100/99 and the base 100 system in this case is the sekhed.
7 zo a base 7 system x 100/99.
The eclipse unit translates using 10/9 as 13.2 x 10/9 and also as 14.52 x 100/99.
