Okay here is the image ( sorry I had company drop in)

In the image I am about to post the thing to notice is that the angle derived by the simplest of right angled triangles can not be Egyptianized, That is it can not be shown as a fraction. There fore it does not exist. For example in a 3, 4 and 5 sided "right angle triangle" the angle derived from it's tan of 3 divided by 4 gives us in decimals 36.869897645844021296855612559093 and really can not be plotted on a 360 degree circle no matter how small the graduations are. Therefore it only exists as a theoretical point and an imaginary one. The Ancient Egyptians never used these concepts. To them the "angle" was simply 3/4ths or 1/2 + 1/4 SEKED !

Here is the image:

EDIT: So using a cubit marked in 28 we get 3/28ths and 4/28th as sides of the cubit and squared for isn't this what we have done ... but created a square we get 9/28th + 16/28th or 25/28ths and square rooted = 5/28ths.








Cherry Picking - If you can't debate your opponents on the substance of the issue, crush them on the minor details.
