Spoiler!
I multiplied pi x phi x 2, but the result is being rejected. What am I doing wrong?

Spoiler!
you have to pay around with significant digits and rounding up. I can't remember, but I had problems on this one too. Keep plugging and chugging. Try rounding up or not, using only the amount of digits you can, or not. It's tricky but you have the right equation.

No rounding and make sure you're reading the second word correctly. I wasn't at first.

I've tried every combination from 19.731 through 19.744... can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong please?

Spoiler!
At least one of your three factors is wrong.

Spoiler!
Probably only one factor was incorrect. 19.739 is 2*pi^2. In the case of this puzzle, you should have 2*pi*phi, where phi is the golden ratio.

The first number is not pi rounded to 3 decimal places, it is the first 3 decimal digits of pi

Only 0.001 different but makes all the difference!

I don’t get this one at all! What do the words have to do with pi and phi
Any clues?

Below are graded hints that lead you to the solution. It assumes you know keys 22, 23, and 24. If you don't know them, get them before you read
Spoiler!
1) The 3 key words you need are Pieces, Morphic, and Network. Write the letters of each key to the right of the [key.xx] in the book.
Spoiler!
2) There are 2 highlighted letters in 'pieces' - Pi. Likewise there are 3 highlighted in 'morphic' - Phi. And 3 more in 'Network' - two.
Spoiler!
3) Each of these words has a numeric equivalent. Pi is a famous one and = 3.141. Phi is the 'golden section' and = 1.618. Two = 2 (duh).
Spoiler!
4) Multiply these three numbers together and round to 3 decimal places as the equation at the bottom of the page indicates.
