I disagree.

The double remen, approx. 10 palms, equivalent to rt2, is discovered first, as the diagonal of a 1c square. Quartering the 1c square gives us the remen, approx. 5 palms, as the half-diagonal. The double remen is equivalent to rt2 while the remen is equivalent to 1/rt2, or rt2/2.

We know from the diagonals of various pyramids, as well as the 154c level, the KC floor level and the KCS design in the Great Pyramid, that they knew both 99/70 and 140/99 for rt2, and by implication, 77/90 and 99/140 for 1/rt2.

PS.

, where's that square root sign you were working on?
