hit a number
 v. phr.— «Inserra knows how intense the pressure to inflate values can get. Three years ago, he found himself battling one of his largest clients. The bank’s senior vice president in charge of mortgage lending tried to get Inserra to “hit a number,” industry parlance for inflating the appraisal. He wouldn’t do it.» —“Taming inflated home appraisals” by Les Christie CNNMoney.com Jan. 14, 2009. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
