c/m = 160934.4

o/l = 33.81402

p/t = 2240

h/a = .4046873 (I actually get .404685)

Explained:

Centimeters per Mile

Ounces per Liter

Pounds per Gross Ton

Hectares per Acre

Been gone awhile, back again, I lead such a boring life. Ok forget the "Gross" and rearrange the numbers in their original sequence and the final conversion ? = ? , is what?

The two words are malt and chop.

M-C , this is one mile converted to centimeters 1-160,934.4

A-H , this is one acre converted to hectaires 1-.4046873

L-O , this is one litre converted to ounces 1-33.81402

T-P , this is one ton converted to pounds (long weight) 1-2240.0

So MALT is converted to CHOP

(I assume this is all you need, if there is more let me know)

So MALT is converted to CHOP

And this means what? Grain is converted to malt, then malt is converted to chop? I've never heard of that. Maybe I'm ignorant of another meaning for chop.

Edit: I'm aware that chop is a name for grain converted to feed animals. Is it converted into malt first and then chop?
