Musical Triplet

Three notes or tones sounded simultaneously as a chord. In the particular case above the Musical Triplet shows the notes C, E and G which may be expressed as a three part ratio: C : E : G or numerically 512 : 640 : 768. The actual frequency or rate of each tone or interval is entirely dependent on the scale used so the numbers per se are not the point of interest. Think in terms of relative ratio or relative quantity much as variable symbols are used in arithmetic; i.e., A + B = C where numeric values may be unknown but the relationship is known and maintained.
