I came across a value for pi the other day and for a moment thought maybe but I was beaten to the punch by an astronomer Tsu Chung-Chih (430-501).

355/113 = 3.141592 9 and according to Mathmatics the birth of numbers this value for pi 'is correct to six decimal places, and was not to be bettered in Europe until the 16th century'

I found it accidently by fiddling with the number 113 calling it digits (there are 16 digits in a foot) measured in imperial feet 113 / 16 = 7.0625 the base of the second pyramid 706.25 feet 8475 inches 215.625m.

I did the same with 355 / 16 = 22.1875 and 2218.75 is the circumference of a circle inscribed into the base of the second pyramid.

2218.75 / 706.25 = 3.14159292.

It is also interesting that the Great pyramid base 756.25 imperial feet ie the number connected with the Royal cubit 20.625 inches is exactly 50 imperial feet longer that that of the second pyr.
