hello Jacob

nice response, before I massacre that cubit let me ask a question

using your formula this is the cubit that i am promoting

1 1 12
1/3 0.333333333 4
1/4 0.25 3
1/8 0.125 1.5
1/36 0.027777778 0.333333333
1.736111111 20.83333333

So it is 1.736111r feet


Is this the way they did it then?

I have only had to change the final fraction to 1/36

1 1 12
1/3 0.333333333 4
1/4 0.25 3
1/8 0.125 1.5
1/40 0.025 0.3
1.733333333 20.8
This is 1/40 giving 20.8

The Royal cubit

1 1 12
1/3 0.333333333 4
1/4 0.25 3
1/8 0.125 1.5
1/96 0.010416667 0.125
1.71875 20.625
20.625

just by changing the final entry, quite remarkable

sorry about the alignments

then we get to Petrie

1 1 12
1/3 0.333333333 4
1/4 0.25 3
1/8 0.125 1.5
1/100 0.01 0.12
1.718333333 20.62
20.62

and the method is the same but Petrie uses 1/100 not 1/96 for the Royal cubit

but this gives an insight into how they actually designed their cubits perhaps

this is what the AE scribes and Jacob knew and knows perhaps!!

you are a wily old fox Jacob

this is the basic framework with miles and inches at the GP base

1 1 12
1/3 0.333333333 4
1/4 0.25 3
1/8 0.125 1.5
0 0 0
1.708333333 20.5
20.5 24600 36080

Thom's cubit is 20.60606060r anf if you can get 1.4141414r i am sure you can get this one.

This is Petrie's first determination

1 1 12
1/3 0.333333333 4
1/4 0.25 3
1/8 0.125 1.5
1/108 0.009259259 0.111111111
1.717592593 20.61111111
20.61111111 24733.33333 36275.55556
36275.55556 20.83333333

This is the real design of the thing OMG!!

This is the constant Royal cubit design

1 1 12
1/3 0.333333333 4
1/4 0.25 3
1/8 0.125 1.5
1/108 0.009259259 0.111111111
1.717592593 20.61111111
20.61111111 24733.33333 36275.55556
36275.55556 20.83333333 20.625a constant

It completely explains why n/(n-1) happens it is the ratio of the final adjustments.
