It is not a coincidence that these two magnitudes are the same. The frequencies in both bands of the
DTMF system were carefully chosen to produce this type of predictable behavior with linear filters. In
other words, the frequencies were chosen to be equally far apart with respect to the response produced
by a linear filter. Most musical scales consist of tones designed with this same property note intervals
are selected to place the notes equally far apart. That is why the DTMF tones remind us of musical
notes! Unlike musical scales, DTMF frequencies were selected to be harmonically unrelated, to lower
the risk of misidentifying a tones frequency if the circuit elements are not perfectly linear.

c) The high-band frequency closest to the low-frequency band is 1209 Hz. The amplitude of a tone with
