: Please I would like to know the meaning and origin of this expression; if it means a great deal of something... etc and where this expression comes from:

: "A hundred and five"

: (I am not talking about 100.5 or 105!!!)

I haven't heard "a hundred and five" used with any meaning except its literal one, the quantity 105. Apparently no one else who responded to your query below has, either. The expression could have a slang meaning based on a high fever, for instance, but this is just speculation. If you said more about the context where you found it, that might help.
