I maintain that this figure is just the ratio of the larger parcel against the smaller: 246:102 = 123:51. Others say that it is a measurement if feet and that it is pure coincidence that it happens to be the ratio of the land.
I have been attempting to calculate the probability of this number appearing as a coincidence.
Any ideas how?
