It is the the number of cards in a deck for each day in April.*Originally posted by sonhouse***What is the significance of this ratio: 1.7333333333 to 1? It might be better expressed as a partial fraction: 1.7 1/3......If we can mix metaphors....**

Hats off to anyone who figures it out. - 15 Mar '12 13:26

It's the number of weeks per year, rounded off, to the number of days per month, also rounded off. Given the amount of rounding off, that accounts for nothing.*Originally posted by sonhouse***What is the significance of this ratio: 1.7333333333 to 1?

Hats off to you! I found that ratio when I realized I had some old 78's but the record player has only 45 and 33 speed. So I thought of a way to do it, using Sonar DAW software, play it at 45 and then record that slow version into Sonar and it has a speed varying function that can bring it up to 78 speed, I did the math and found that ratio. Now that I think about it, it may not work right, I think it does pitch changes, not sure about speed changes, it might do that too, would need both for that project.*Originally posted by Nybes***Hmm.. could it be the ratio of turntable speeds between a '78' record and a '45'?**

How did you figure it out? You have old records? - 19 Mar '12 18:46 / 2 edits

There's not much math there, 78/45 = 1.733...*Originally posted by sonhouse***Hats off to you! I found that ratio when I realized I had some old 78's but the record player has only 45 and 33 speed.
