Sorry to say, from my perspective, there is no pi in Ancient Egypt mathematics. To the best of my knowledge nowhere in the papyri did they calculate the circumference of a circle from the diameter. The extension and adaption of the a = 8/9 x d ^2 formula used in this manner would seem to be an erroneous assumption regarding Ancient Egyptian methods by modern pi orientated mathematicians.

The formula of (8/9)d^2 finds the area pf a circle and is used extensively in many problems in the papyri,
What I presented is based on the components of the 5 1/2 seked and is for finding the circumference from a square not the diameter, drawing here: <[grahamhancock.com];

560 cubits is also the diameter of the circle, 27 us a special number
3^3 = 27 doubling
27 + 27= 54
54 + 54 = 108
108 + 108 = 216
216 + 216 = 432
432 + 432 = 864
864 + 864 = 1728
1728 + 1728 = 3456, 3456 times twice G1 perimeter equals Earth Mean Radius. 3456 x 6048 = 20901888 ft..
3456 + 3456 = 6912, 6912 times G1 perimeter equals Earth Mean Radius. 6912 x 3024 = 20901888 ft..

280 x 25 = 7000, 7000 x 8 = 56000 square perimeter digits, 56000 / (14/11) = 44000 circumference of circle. Very interesting, but I couldn't find a source or sample for the 25 digit cubit? I did find physical cubit rods with 24, 27 and 28 digits at the Turin Museum. Where did you get 25 digits.
280 x 27 = 7560, 7560 x 8 = 60480 square perimeter digits, 60480 / (14/11) = 47520 circumference of circle.
280 x 28 = 7840, 7840 x 8 = 62720 square perimeter digits, 62720 / (14/11) = 49280 circumference of circle,
280 x 24 = 6720, 6720 x 8 = 53760 square perimeter digits, 53760 / (14/11) = 42240 circumference of circle.
