 Interval (music) 
  In music theory, an interval is the distance in pitch between two notes, the lower and higher members of the interval. 
  It is important to note that while intervals may be named by their harmonic functions, for instance, a major second, may be described by a ratio, cent, or integer, not every interval described by these more general terms may be described with the harmonic function name. 
  Important intervals are those using the lowest integers, such as 1/1, 2/1, 3/2, etc. This method is also often used in theoretical explanations of equaltempered intervals used in European tonal music which explain their use through their approximation of just intervals.
