In particular, the ratio of the slant height s to half the base b is said to be the golden ratio. To verify this we have to find the slant height. Computation of Slant Height s The dimensions, to the nearest tenth of a meter, of the Great Pyramid of Cheops, determined by various expeditions. height = 146.515 m, and base = 230.363 m Half the base is 230.363 ÷ 2 = 115.182 m So, s 2 = 146.515 + 115.182 2 = 34,733 m 2 s = 18636.9 mm...
