In 5-limit just intonation, 8/5 is the just minor sixth, classic(al) minor sixth, or ptolemaic minor sixth^{[1]}, measuring about 813.7 ¢. It is the octave-reduced fifth subharmonic, and thus the inversion of 5/4, the classic major third. It appears in chords where the 1/1 is higher than the 5/4, such as 5:6:8 (a first-inversion major triad). It is a large half step of 16/15 (about 111.7 ¢) sharp of 3/2, and a syntonic comma (81/80, about 21.5 ¢) sharp of the Pythagorean minor sixth of 128/81 (about 792.2 ¢).
