Hello Molder and Merrell,

Try this for size.
Original intended planned height of Khafre's pyramid was the same as the height of Khufu's pyramid @ 280rc.
This was reduced by 20rc divided by 3 1/7 @ 6.364rc - thus making the intended height 273.636rc (5645.66 British inches/143.4m).
Lehner gives height as 143.5m - difference 0.1m

Seked 5.25 (equiv. 1.3333 - triangle 3:4:5) was chosen for the intended gradient of the faces.
This makes the intended horizontal distance between a side at the base and the apex of the pyramid 273.636rc divided by 1.3333 = 205.227rc.
Length of side at the base then 205.227rc x 2 = 410.454rc (8468.49 British inches/215.1m).
Lehner gives length as 215m - difference 0.1m.

Regards,

Robin (MJT)
