When we “divide” an interval into “equal” smaller intervals, we seek a smaller ratio which, when multiplied by itself a given number of times, equals the larger ratio: that is, we are extracting roots. This “division” produces “irrational” pitch ratios which seem dissonant or out of tune when compared to near equivalents which are simple ratios.
