^{2}× 3 × 5^{2}**300 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **300edo** or **300ed2**), also called **300-tone equal temperament** (**300tet**) or **300 equal temperament** (**300et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 300 equal parts of exactly 4 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/300}, or the 300th root of 2.

300edo's step size is called a **savart** when used as an interval size unit.

## Theory

300edo is the largest-number edo which tempers out the Pythagorean comma, 531441/524288, in the patent val.

It is inconsistent to the 5-odd-limit and higher, with three mappings possible for the 5-limit: ⟨300 475 697] (patent val), ⟨300 **476** 697] (300b), and ⟨300 475 **696**] (300c).

Using the patent val, it tempers out 531441/524288 and [47 7 -25⟩ in the 5-limit; 6144/6125, 50421/50000, and 1594323/1568000 in the 7-limit.

Using the 300b val, it tempers out 393216/390625 and [51 -38 4⟩ in the 5-limit; 153664/151875, 179200/177147, and 823543/819200 in the 7-limit. Using the 300bd val, it tempers out 10976/10935, 65536/64827, and 390625/388962 in the 7-limit.

Using the 300c val, it tempers out 531441/524288 and [-58 0 25⟩ in the 5-limit; 225/224, 250047/250000, and 69206436005/68719476736 in the 7-limit.

### Subsets and supersets

Since 300 factors into 2^{2} × 3 × 5^{2}, 300edo has subset edos 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25, 30, 50, 60, 75, 100, and 150. 600edo, which doubles it, gives a good correction to its approximation of the 5-limit.
