 Parshas Hashavua חיי שרה

יעקב bought land in שכם to house his entire family
and all the animals he owned. He paid for it 100 קשיטה.
רש:י says a קשיטה & a מעה are the same. 

A שקל has 24 מעה. Therefore Yakov paid 100 מעה 
that was just slightly more than 4 שקל.

אברהם bought the מערת המכפלה which probably
wasn't larger than the property in שכם, yet he paid 
400 שקלים one hundred times more than יעקב
