The septimal sixth-tone or jubilisma, 50/49, is the only superparticular comma aside from 126/125 which has a numerator which is neither square nor triangular, meaning it is not the difference between septimal superparticular rations with numerators differing by either one or two; instead, 50/49 = (10/7)/(7/5). Tempering out equates the two, leading to temperaments where the square root of two does service for both. Equal temperaments tempering out 50/49 include 12edo, 22edo, 26edo, 38edo, 48edo and 54edo.
