Papers On The Great Pyramid.
The sum of the three totals thus equals 100 , of Avhich number of stones the Avails of tho chamber are composed . The length of the chamber multiplied by 5 x 5 yields 10303 * 29 , or the same I ' OAV of figures , Avith the decimal point differently placed , as Mr . Simpson ' s unit of division ; ancl if it be asked Avhat further significance this number has , then it may be replied that the area of the square base of the Pj'ramid is equal to the area of a circle Avhose diameter equals 10303 * 30 .
