Hello Hermione,

The point is that the height of the Pyramid (280rcs) is seen as the radius of a circle, and the perimeter of the Pyramid's base (1,760rcs) is seen as the circumference of that circle.

Therefore it is quite correct to say that pi as 3 1/7 or 22/7 appears in the Pyramid's superstructure.

If the appearance of pi as 3 1/7 or 22/7 in the Pyramid's superstructure is intentional, then a reason for the height being seen as the radius of a circle becomes clear.
280rcs seen as a diameter instead of a radius would produce an impossibly steep and much smaller pyramid (280rcs rise to 110rcs run = 68.6 degrees).

MJ
