How long did it take to build the pyramids?

Answer

30 years

There is a mathematical problem with the above 30 year answer. If you do the math there are 10,950 days in 30 years. If there are 2,300,000 blocks in the largest pyramid, that would be putting in 210 2 1/2 ton blocks a day! I don't think that rate is possible. That doesn't take into account the time to get the site ready and start up the construction. So, they it may have taken 30 years, but I don't think there can be that many blocks in the pyramid. I would guess the estimate of the number of blocks is too large. The internal structure must be different then is what is currently believed to be. If we find out the complete details of the internal structure, we might finally find out how they were built.

I think you are both wrong the answer is 24 years

Well i think sorry i know it took 50 years to build the great pyramid of Giza because they used 2,000,000 milloin limestone blocks so th maximum amount would be 20-50 years to build 1 pyramid.
