Hi Hermione George Johnson was at The Guardian Egypt Board.

But now let's test out my theory of measure. At Dashur the distance from The Bent Pyramid to The Red is 6702 feet which equals 3900.29 cubits (6702 x 12 / 20.62)

From Petrie: [imagizer.imageshack.us]

We will assume it was supposed to be 3900.00 cubits even. So according to my theory given a horizontal distance of 3900 the rise should be 3900/7 or 557.14285714285714285714285714286 or easier 557 and 1/7th divided by 1/280 and we get 0.5025641025641025641025641025641 or easier 10/199 or even easier:

10/199 = 1/20 + 1/3980 (Thanks to this site: [www.maths.surrey.ac.uk] )

Now this first image is what I calculated a pyramid would look like from 3900 cubits using 280 as a height and the Louvre cubit rod:

The second image is actually what The Bent looks like from The Red Pyramid.

Both are to the same scale to the best of my knowledge,

Here is my presentation ...
