how do I work it out?

I'm trying to work out what NPS (notes per second) 16ths at 184bpm are.

Any help?

Christ, I heard the education system in this country was going down the tubes but still...

184x16 = notes per minute

notes per minute/60 = notes per second

More to the point, who cares?

divide 184 by 60 and you get about 3. thats how many beats per second (or how many quarter notes a second) multiply that by 4 to get 16th notes and you get 12. so there are 12 sixteenth notes per second. multiply by 60 and there are 720 per minute.

so 12 nps. I had it worked out as 12 but my aching fingers thought it was more.

And i wanted to know because i'm trying to get faster.

16ths are 4 notes per beat, so 184 times 4, all divided by 60, = 12.3 ish nps i think

I got that wrong - the maths is right but the musical theory is off! I was working of whole notes, not crotchets...there's 4 16th notes in a crotchet so it should have been 184 x 4, not 184 x 16!
