In Case You Will Wonder

This coming Shabbos when saying the סלוק some might wonder
why the Kalir says that the world is smaller than the Torah
by a fraction of 1/ 2,400 when the Gemoro (Eruvin 21a) says
that the fraction is 1/ 3,200.

Tosfos  (ד"ה אחד משלשת) points out that R.Eliezer Hakalir
argues on the Gemoro that holds that a זרת is a 1/2 an אמה 
and the Kalir holds  that a זרת is a 1/3 of an אמה and therefore
his calculation is 1/2,400

The רשש has a solution  that the the Kalir will not argue on

the Bavli.
