The pyrmid is 20:6 m high. n you find the length of the slnt edges of the pyrmid? Right ngles ( 90 o ngles) re used when onstruting uildings nd dividing res of lnd into retngulr regions. The nient Egyptins used rope with 12 eqully sped knots to form tringle with sides in the rtio 3:4:5: This tringle hs right ngle etween the sides of length 3 nd 4 units. In ft, this is the simplest right ngled tringle with sides of integer length.
