169/162, the tridecimal tritonic third tone, is the interval between 18/13 and 13/9. It is also the difference between a stack of two 27/26 third tones and a 9/8 whole tone- a fact which might be of interest to those microtonalists who are more classically minded, as it behaves as a kind of second, with 27/26 behaving as a sort of corresponding chroma.
