    the best part of something

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    “Go on” he said to Riggs; “we will get the best part of the way home.”

    the best part of something = the better part of something = the larger part of something

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regard,

    V
