The solution appears to be it is used to calculate the volume of a sphere using a value for Pi.
The volume of a sphere is 4/3 x pi r cubed.
If the radius is 4/3 the Rind 50 numbers emerge
4/3 x 4/3 x 4/3 x 4/3 = 256/81 or 3.160493827.
the solution can be reached by using the sekhed x 1.5 = 21/11
The side of the outside cube is 2.666r so the volume is 2.666r cubed and this is 18.96296296
Dividing this by 21/11 gives 9.9329806
So dividing this by 'Egyptian Pi' will give the value of Pi used in the calculation.
The answer is 22/7.
11/21 = 0.523809524
This is a number the ancients seemd to be very familiar with. Multiply it by 6 and get 22/7 and by 7 to get 3.666r or 10 barleycorns
Multiply by 28 to get 40 barleycorns or 14.666r the ECLIPSE UNIT.
If 28 represents 14.666r then 56 represents 29.333r the smoothed lunar month.
27 represents 14.666r /28 x 27 = 14.14285714 and this is 10 x 99/70 ( root 2)
14.14285714 /16500 x 16499 = 14.142 the Harris and Stockdale Megalithic Foot.
If the radius of the sphere is 1 then the calculation is 4/3 x 22/7 = 88/21 so the volume of the cube will be 88/21 x 21/11 = 8.
So unbelievably simple for such a complex calculation.
