Music (help please!!)

 Musical tones.  The note middle C on a piano is tuned so that the string vibrates at 262 cycles per second or 262 HZ (Hertz). The C note one octave higher is tuned to 524 HZ. The tuning for the 11 notes in between using the method called equal temperament is determined by the sequence an=262*2n/12. Find the tuning for the 11 notes in between. Round to the nearest Hz. Show and explain your work.
