    Default Help with values please

    I have a piece at 6/8.

    The tempo is indicated as a dotted-quarter note of 75.

    How would be the tempo indicated as a quarter note?

    In other words ; if q.=75, then q= ?

    Sibelius seems to convert the q into 113. Is this correct?

    Yes I believe that is correct. Well, 112.5 to be really exact.

    112.5 is the 150% percentage of 75, right? But how did you come up with this? Can you explain it, because I'm not good at maths? When I tried to figure out the q in the first place, I used the rule of three ;

    q. = 3 (8ths)
    q = 2

    So, 3/75=2/x
    x=50

    75 is 100%
    37.5 is 50%

    therefore

    150% is 75 + 37.5 = 112.5
