The piece of music that I am learning is 60 measures long. There are 13 beats in every measure, and every eighth note lasts for 1 beat. The last 17 measures of this piece are the finale. In every measure of the finale, there are 7 eighth notes played at middle C. If middle C never occurs in this piece outside of the finale, for what fraction of the whole piece do I play middle C? (You should assume in this problem that no more than one note is played at any given time.)
