^{3}× 5^{2}(semiconvergent)

**200 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **200edo** or **200ed2**), also called **200-tone equal temperament** (**200tet**) or **200 equal temperament** (**200et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 200 equal parts of exactly 6 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/200}, or the 200th root of 2.

## Theory

200edo contains a perfect fifth of exactly 702 cents and a perfect fourth of exactly 498 cents, which is accurate due to 200 being the denominator of a continued fraction convergent to log_{2}(3/2). The error is only about 1/22 cents. In light of having its perfect fifth precise and the step divisible by 9, it is essentially a perfect edo for Carlos Alpha, even up many octaves (the difference between 13 steps of 200edo and 1 step of Carlos Alpha is only 0.03501 cents).

The equal temperament tempers out the schisma, 32805/32768 and the quartemka, [2 -32 21⟩ in the 5-limit, and the gamelisma, 1029/1024, in the 7-limit, so that it supports the guiron temperament.

One step of 200edo is close to 289/288. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with any obvious 2.3.17 subgroup mappings of 200edo.

### Subsets and supersets

200 factorizes as 5^{2} × 2^{3}. 200edo's subset edos are: 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 20, 25, 40, 50, 100.

400edo, which doubles it, provides good correction for the harmonics 5 and 7, and makes for a strong 19-limit system.
