Hello

The metre and the mile are both ancient measures and I first found them in the Indus Valley civilization.

Your presentation is very lengthy. You can shorten your calculations considerably by applying this principal.

In the ancient world the kilometre and mile were part of one system of measures.

For instance Quote 'Average length of the equator 40,000 km' In the ancient world then 40,000km or 40,000,000 ancient metres = 25,000 miles.

The mile 63360 inches is exactly the same as the length of the modern mile however the old metre is slightly longer 1.00584 more than a modern metre. see [www.dozenalsociety.org.uk]

The ancient metre = 1.00584 of a modern metre 3.3 of an Imperial foot 39.6 inches and a mile in this system = 4800 feet 1600 ancient metres.

Erastostenes circumference 250000 stadium is 10 stadium of 600 feet 200 metres 25000 miles 40,000km.

Now consider the number 324 feet of 13.2 inches or 1/3rd 108 in ancient metres. The base of the third pyramid.

You throw in numbers such as 126. In geometry 1.26 is important as it is the method used when doubling a cube 2 x 1.26 = 2.52 to double cube of 2 and end up with Erastostenes number for the circumference of the earth 252000 stadium or 25200 miles.

I can see you have done so much work but you need to compress it and touch on points of interest.

Jim
