An ungrateful award

King Chester awarded a triangular piece of land to his favorite court jester. The three sides measured 150 2/3 yards, 195 3/4 yards, and 45 yards 3 inches. His wife had long been asking him to have a piece of land where she could build a home, a garden, and a temple in each corner. The jester told his wife the good news but was surprised that shew as unhappy. Can you tell why she was unhappy?

150 2/3 yards + 45 yards 3 inches = 195 3/4 yards exactly...which means the plot of land is a straight line...not much land at all...I'd be pretty upset as well.
