9900 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 9900edo), or 9900-tone equal temperament (9900tet), 9900 equal temperament (9900et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 9900 equal parts of about 0.121 ¢ each. Each step of 9900edo represents a frequency ratio of 21/9900, or the 9900th root of 2.

9900edo is consistent in the 9-odd-limit and it is otherwise a good 2.3.5.7.17.29 subgroup system.

In the 7-limit, it is a septiruthenian system, setting 64/63 to 1\44, so that the septimal comma is 225 purdals. It is a member of the optimal ET sequence for the ruthenium temperament with an additional prescribed mapping for 5 in the 13-limit.
