...says: "Find the volume of a cylindrical granary of diameter 9 and height 10." The solution follows: **"Take away 1/9 of 9, namely, 1; the remainder is 8....8; it makes 64. Multiply 64 times 10; it makes 640** cubed cubits." (The author then multiplies this result by 15/2 to convert it to hekat, the standard... | |
