  • Never, ever had to use 65, 43, 42 in the last 65 yrs - can't see how it will change my music now! Academic!

  • The 65 , 43 , 43 notation (should be vertical: 6 over 5 ...) helps to clarify the position of the all important bass note identification. That's all.

Like Tim says in his comment ACEbF is F7/A. F7 is the dominant of Bb

So V7/iv in F minor is the secondary dominant of Bb minor (iv) and F7 with A in bass is the 1st inversion of FACEb.

The identification of this applied chord { A , C , F , E flat } is best described as : V65 / iv and F7 / A .( unless Richard says otherwise )
