120edo means division of the octave into equal parts of 10 cents each. Its patent val is contorted only through the 3-limit and does not temper out 81/80 in the 5-limit or 64/63 and 5120/5103 in the 7-limit. However, 5120/5103 is done about as badly as this interval can be done relative to an equal division, falling close to exactly in the middle of a step (1\120 is ~42.42 relative cents sharp of it). Being the simplest division of the octave by the Germanic long hundred, it has a unit step which is the fine relative cent of 1edo
