<20.61818181818r /100 x 99 = 20.412 this is the imperial equivalent of your base 100 sacred unit.
20.412 / 12 = 1.701 this is one step from Thom's base unit
20.4 is the unit scaled down to 1.7>
Hi again David,
I was going to comment on this on my last post but lost my train of thought. The 1701 is a figure that pops up a lot in certain Volume calculations I've studied in the past, that I will describe later. For now, a GP perimeter of 3024 Imp.Ft / 2.72 Ft.MY = 1111.764706 MY. x 9x17, or 153 = 170,100.
Now 5 cubic Ft. = 8640 cu/ins. x a Wheat grain cu/in. at 196.875 grs. = 1,701,000 gr., or / 7000 gr. Av/Lb. = 243 Lbs. Also equal to 4 ancient bushel units of 2160 cu/ins. at 60.75 Lbs. per bushel. The current weight of a bushel of Wheat today is a statute minimum of 60 Lbs., and is factored by the Winchester bushel capacity volume as 2151.2857 cu/ins., which weighs typically more using the same cu/in. weight unit of 196.875gr. x Winchester Bushel volume = 423,534.375 gr. / 7000 gr. = 60.5 Lbs. This only goes to show how the standards established from prerecorded history have been preserved to the present day by this system.
