Simply consider all given values there
as frequencies in Hz of absolute pitches,
that are subjects of 3 possible sequential operations:
Algorithm for synchroneous well-temperaments:
1. Step 19-times an octaves down, by halfing the pitch-frequency
2. Go 12 times to partial 3:1, by multipying with facor 3.
3. Decrement frequncy by -1Hz down, when intend tempering flattend.
but only if you insist in "wide-5ths" then allow also too:
(4. Increment by +1Hz upwards, for an sharper "French"-5th.)
Choose the chain of flow in the operation sequence
so that the circle of a dozen 5ths returns back to the initial
start after 12times 3:1 and 19times 1:2 while fitting the
decrements so, that they yield an distribution of the PC=3^12:2^19

That ratio of 3/2 = 1.5 arises operationally from taking the
quotient of the 3rd partial (3:1) over an octve (2:1),
when realting that both overtones #2 and #3 to theirs fundamental
hope that helps,
why i do prefer the multiplication by the "harmoic" factor 3
in order to stay wihin the partial-series.
Even Brad understood that in his: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~bpl/larips/bachtemps.html
"...in the line of fifths A-E-B-F#-C#-G#-D#-Bb-F-C-G-D-A to reduce the
next note by 1 Hz, i.e. introducing a beat rate of 1 per second
against the preceding fifth. The fifths F#-C#-G#-D# and D-A are kept
pure. The other eight are adjusted by different geometric amounts,
based on the superparticular ratios described in his algorithm.
(Arithmetically, it amounts to subtracting 1 Hz from the top of most
of the columns, in his chart, wherever there are values in
Brad contiues or the experts:
"Sparschuh's mathematical algorithm resembles the classic unproven
"Collatz Conjecture" from 1937, except that Sparschuh's iterated
function uses (3n-1) rather than (3n+1). [And see Eric Roosendaal's
3x+1 web site, along with this page by Frits Beukers demonstrating and
comparing the numerical sequences....]"
