The Great Pyramid of Cheops has a square base of 771 ft on a side and a height of 486 ft. How many rooms 25 ft x 20 ft x 8 ft would be needed to have a volume equivalent to that of the Great Pyramidâ€™s?

Pyramid:
V = (b^2 * h) / 3
V = (594,441 * 486) / 3
V = 96,299,442 sq. ft.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Room:
V = LWH
V = 25 * 20 * 8
V = 4,000 sq. ft.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
96,299,442 / 4,000 = ?________ rooms
