Default CEC Voltage drop example

Vurrently studying for my masters and looking a voltage drop. In the 2018 CEC the voltage drop example D3-9 says at the the end "If the distance is BETWEEN 38 and 60.5m, a larger conductor is required"

The example just established the max lenght to be 38m.

Shouldn't a larger size be anything >38m in this case? And Where did 60.5m come from?

If anyone can shed light on this I'd appreciate it.
Thx
