1. ## 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?  Reply With Quote

2. ## Yes I believe that is correct. Well, 112.5 to be really exact.  Reply With Quote

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  Reply With Quote

5. ## 75 is 100%
37.5 is 50%

therefore

150% is 75 + 37.5 = 112.5  Reply With Quote

150% is 75 + 37.5 = 112.5
