### Calculation process of conversion value

• 1 point (TeX) = (exactly) ((254/722700)) / ((79200/3937)) = 1.747092482875 × 10-5 chain
• 1 chain = (exactly) ((79200/3937)) / ((254/722700)) = 57237.954475909 point (TeX)
• ? point (TeX) × ((254/722700)  ("m"/"point (TeX)")) / ((79200/3937)  ("m"/"chain")) = ? chain

### High precision conversion
