  "description": "<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p class=\"western\"><em>The Douglas triangle is a special right triangle using &phi; and &radic;3. It appears that its proportions and peculiarities impressed the Giza planners so much that they used it, when scaled by 50&pi;, for the base lengths of the Khufu and Khafre pyramids. This paper presents the triangle and discusses some of its interesting features.</em></p>\n\n<p>\np { margin-bottom: 0.25cm; line-height: 115%; orphans: 0; widows: 0; background: transparent; page-break-before: auto }p.western { font-family: \"Libertinus Math\"; font-size: 12pt; font-weight: normal }a:visited { color: #800000; so-language: zxx; text-decoration: underline }a:link { color: #000080; so-language: zxx; text-decoration: underline }\n\n</p>",
