I have seen one sentence -
But it was by far and wide the most expensive.
I know what "far and wide" means, but the meaning from the dictionary doesn't seem to fit here. Rather it seems "by far and away" would be the best fit here for this example sentence. Or even "by far" would be good.
Just want to know "by far and wide" means "by far and away"? Or does it mean something else in this sentence?
