19/17 is a 19-limit just intonation interval intermediate in size to 9/8 and 10/9, two common sizes of whole tone. In meantone systems, the two are conflated into one interval, for which 19/17 is often a good rational approximation, depending on the exact meantone tuning. It is a particularly good rational approximation to the whole tone of quarter comma meantone, as two of them fall short of a perfect 5/4 by 1445/1444, or 1.1985 cents. 19/17 is also very close to the size of the whole tone in golden meantone, being only about a tenth of a cent off.
19/17 is the mediant of 9/8 and 10/9: (9 + 10)/(8 + 9) = 19/17.
