Hello Lee and Lobo and everybody else,

256/81
You could have
256/81 = 3 + 1/7 + 1/57 + 1/10773
256/81 = 3 + 1/7 + 1/63 + 1/567
256/81 = 3 + 1/7 + 1/81 + 1/189
256/81 = 3 + 1/9 + 1/21 + 1/567
256/81 = 3 + 1/12 + 1/13 + 1/4212

Given the AEs 7 palms to 1 royal cubit, I wouldn't be at all suprised if in practice they opted for one of the 3 + 1/7 + xxxx.
Now opt for only 1 fraction - the first one, naturally - and lo and behold...

Now, before anybody starts jumping up and down and screaming that the AEs didn't know, blah, blah, blah... this is just idle speculation on my part and is not to be taken seriously... er, um, on the other hand...
