please fill in all 4 sumti with something other than zo'e or "la ... [ku]"

le se mitre be le nilcla be la banli bliku po la .gizas. bei lo sraji cu magnitenfo li su'ai re li dau lo si'o dugri ciste kei be mi "The number of meters for measuring the length of the Great Pyramid of Giza in the vertical direction is of the order of magnitude 2 (sigfigs) in decimal base, using an idea of a logarithmic system, thought of by me"; more approximately: "The Great Pyramid of Giza is approximately one hundred meters high, where I used a logarithmic scale for figuring that out". I am iffiest about my submission to the fourth terbri there.
