Hi Cyrano,

The Great Pyramid is 1.618 on it side/face while looking at it
horizantally. The Height being 1.272. Then the base of one side is

So to recreate, make a triangle which has about 2 on base. 1.618 from
base to apex and using your Pythagorean knowledge for a right hand
triangle, figure out your slopes for each triangle.
Which in this case would be. Z= ((1.618)^2 + (1)^2))^1/2
.....1.9........

Base=2
height=1.618
slope=1.9......
