Hi, Sara.

I looked at:

http://www.harcourt.com/dictionary/def/1/8/4/7/1847600.html

and found a definition, which I patched up a little bit for readibility, as follows:

Cent: In acoustics. a unit of pitch interval equivalent to 1/100th of a tempered semitone, 1/200th of a tempered tone, and 1/1200th of an octave, which facilitates the adding and subtracting of musical intervals.

Good luck.
