# 476edo

^{2}× 7 × 17**476 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **476edo** or **476ed2**), also called **476-tone equal temperament** (**476tet**) or **476 equal temperament** (**476et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 476 equal parts of about 2.52 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/476}, or the 476th root of 2.

## Theory

476edo is consistent to the 7-odd-limit, but the harmonic 3 is about halfway its steps, while its 5 and 7 are both tuned flat. To start with, consider the 2.3.5.7 patent val, as well as 2.9.15.21 and 2.9.5.7 subgroups.

Using the patent val, the equal temperament tempers out 2401/2400 and 19683/19600 in the 7-limit, supporting harry. The 11-limit 476e val tempers out 3025/3024 and 41503/41472, whereas the patent val tempers out 243/242, 441/440, 540/539, 4000/3993, 8019/8000, and 9801/9800, supporting 11-limit harry.

### Subsets and supersets

476 factors into 2^{2} × 7 × 17, with subset edos 2, 4, 7, 14, 17, 28, 34, 68, 119, and 238. 952edo, which doubles it, gives a good correction to the harmonic 3, but unfortunately it is inconsistent in the 5-odd-limit.
