^{2}× 5 × 47**940 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **940edo** or **940ed2**), also called **940-tone equal temperament** (**940tet**) or **940 equal temperament** (**940et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 940 equal parts of about 1.28 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/940}, or the 940th root of 2.

940edo is distinctly consistent through the 11-odd-limit. The equal temperament tempers out 2401/2400 in the 7-limit and 5632/5625 and 9801/9800 in the 11-limit, which means it supports decoid and in fact gives an excellent tuning for it. In the 13-limit, it tempers out 676/675, 1001/1000, 1716/1715, 2080/2079, 4096/4095 and 4225/4224, so that it supports and gives the optimal patent val for 13-limit decoid. It also gives the optimal patent val for the greenland and baffin temperaments, and for the rank-5 temperament tempering out 676/675.

The non-patent val ⟨940 1491 2184 2638 3254 3481] gives a tuning almost identical to the POTE tuning for the 13-limit pele temperament, tempering out 196/195, 352/351 and 364/363.

In higher limits, it is a satisfactory no-13's 23-limit tuning. Another thing to note is that its 15th harmonic is just barely off of the sum of mappings for 3rd and 5th harmonics, which adds a peculiarity to it where it has good 3/2 and 5/4, but 15/8 is one step off from the closest location.

### Subsets and supersets

Since 940 factors into 2^{2} × 5 × 47, 940edo has subset edos 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 47, 94, 188, 235, 470, of which 94edo is notable.

1880edo, which doubles 940edo, provides good correction for harmonics 5 and 13, though the error of 3 has accumulated to the point of inconsistency in the 9-odd-limit.
