in ancient egypt, pharoes were placed in great pyramids, which served as a tumb. these pyramids were magnifacent, and there were no mistakes made on them. the archatects eventually learned geometry to have the right proportions for the pyramids, and other mathimatical needs. also, they learned some in science.
