They don't know what you're talking about.
The mathematicians say the problem calculates frustum, involving calculus.
Looks like a cone to me.
But then, what would mathematicians know about a mathematical papyrus. And what the hell would you know about math, engineers don't use it ;) You're talking in terms these guys don't have a clue about.
The bozos on this board see a pyramid glyph, they don't see mathematics, let alone calculus.
