The rootminor triad is a 16:19:24 chord which has steps of 5/4-6/5, which makes it also 10:12:15. It tempers out the rootminor comma of 96/95. This chord is notable for being a worthy starting point in exploring the quality of "minorness," inasmuch as it can function equally as (1:)16:19:24 or (1:)10:12:15, depending on which note the listener hears as the root. Aside from 12-equal, it also exists in 39-equal, 43-equal and 51-equal. With the correct choice of val, it also can be used in 34, 46, and 58 equal, by 34h, 46h, or 58h.
