I will pick yokels apart, and with your own help:

LOL, Rhind Mathematical Papyrus problem # 50 What is the area of a circular field with a diameter of 9. The written solution states, subtract 1/9 of of the diameter which leaves 8 khet. The area is 8 multiplied by 8, or 64 setat.

and

As previously stated the value of 256/81 is our value extrapolated using our methods from RMP problem #50. According to all records, if and only if, 256/81 were known in Ancient Egypt...

IS OUR VALUE EXTRAPOLATED..

Let alone what I previously posted that you are responding to and not responding to...

Jacob...as I said, what we have to rely upon as what the ancients knew is not what they knew...it is a little bit of what they knew. Tell me...why did the ancient Greeks go to Alexandria and the surrounds to learn about math and astronomy if they could do so much better? The ancient Greeks were tremendous with delving into stuff...why go anywhere else?

Why did Pythagoras go to Egypt to discover the Pythagorean theorem of a right angled triangle if he could do it himself?

And on that note...the origin of 'pi'...do we ascribe the Greeks to that? Oh lmfao.

When did the Alexandria Library get destroyed?

Sheesh...Jacob, honestly, if you want to stay with a few papyri, you won't raise yourself to what math is all about and where it came from...you'll be stuck with children's math instead of university math. 8/9 and such is kid's stuff...that's why folk who keep investigating this stuff can't go anywhere above it. They are stuck in it...in a circle and a square that don't equate and they still try to make it equate.

Okay...extend yourself for a moment: the circle has 360deg, 60 minutes per degree, and 60 seconds per minute...and standing on a hill, you can see the horizon where an arc-second can have 50 or a 100 parts to it - depending on your eye sight. Let's say 100. You have turned 1,296,000 parts of the circle into 129,600,000 parts to the circle. How much better are you in defining a value for pi?

Gobekli Tepe defines an observatory that can define very small alignments because of the dimples on the T-bars and a little tear-dropped shaped figurine standing in those dimples - as found by Schmidt in his seasonal reports. A few figurines lets those playing there define seasonal and yearly locations of stars and the Sun and the Moon and planets upon the horizon. Astronomy is not just known at that time but extended according to who set the scene for that construction to be built. Someone knew something and let it out so Gobekli Tepe could be constructed with its pillars and associated figures upon those pillars.

You get to Giza and what the pyramids can show and there is a whole other ball-game going on.

Mate...I in no way whatsoever want to destroy your goal...as much as I am able to, I will offer things that get you to your goal. You want to be validated with all your work towards an understanding of something that has eluded so called 'brilliant minds'. And in saying that, I will offer up something I said a while back:

Well, it's close...

You don't know what someone can offer up in their ramblings that can make you go forward with your own work.

I am not rambling... I am investigating all manner of math associated with Khufu's pyramid...and the beams have one thing while other things have other things. I offered stuff about the beams and a few folk played with that...that;s called 'investigation' by minds and observations and trying to find some solutions.

Molder offered a few pi amounts to do with the pyramid and I responded to try and take it forward...I want folk to take things forward, because we are here, in this place, and investigating stuff. How would any of us feel that someone 'found something' and they did it here with the help of those in here?

It is a lot better than doing it somewhere else, isn't it?

I once thought 'fools gold' had gold in it...and it actually does have gold in it...silly me?...
