For each set of three musical notes forming a triad, print the name of the chord they form, consisting of the root note and the type of triad.
Each note is represented as an uppercase letter, optionally followed by a single accidental, either sharp (♯ U+266F) or flat (♭ U+266D).
There are twelve pitch classes in twelve-tone equal temperament, some of which have multiple names due to ♯ and ♭ raising and lowering the pitch, respectively. They are, in ascending order:
|#||Name 1||Name 2|
A triad consists of a root note on the bottom followed by two thirds stacked on top of it. Thirds describe the distance between the preceding and following note. A third can be either of two types:
|Minor third||3||A C (note 0 to note 3)|
|Major third||4||C E (note 3 to note 7)|
Being that there are 2 thirds in a triad and each third can be of 2 different types, there are 4 total “types” of triads. They are:
|Triad Name||Thirds (Bottom to Top)||Example|
|Diminished Triad||Minor, Minor||B D F|
|Minor Triad||Minor, Major||E G B|
|Major Triad||Major, Minor||C E G|
|Augmented Triad||Major, Major||D F♯ A♯|
- Triads of notes will always be written out so that the letters in the name used ascend by 2 between each third (wrapping back to A after G). Therefore, a triad consisting of notes 3, 6, and 9 may be written as B♯ D♯ F♯ or C E♭ G♭, but not, for example, as C D♯ F♯.
- The notes may appear in any order, e.g., C E G and E C G both may appear.
- Chords are named by the root note followed by nothing for major, m for minor, ° U+00B0 for diminished, and + for augmented.
- The spelling of the root note in the output must match the input, e.g. the expected output for C E♭ G♭ is C°, not B♯°.
