Im working through a music theory exercise book and I just need confirmation if I am not understanding something or if the book made a mistake again(there are quite a few mistakes in this workbook which isn't too good for me). I recreated the example they've given:
Just a quick reminder that this dominant 7th chord is in open position.Anyways, the first measure is supposedly the root position(it has V^7 below it in the book), the 2nd measure is the first inversion (V^65), 3rd measure is second inversion(V^43) and the last measure is 3rd inversion (V^42)
I understand that to figure out an inversion, I must look at the lowest note and basically compare it to the notes in root position. From bottom up in the root position, it is established that the chord is G, B(natural), F and D. However if I compare it to the chord in the third measure --which happens to be D, B(natural), G, F--I get that this chord position is third inversion since D(the 7th) is the lowest note. So am I understanding a concept incorrectly or is did the book make a mistake? If I am correct, then that means the third and fourth measure are switched.
Oh and I forgot to mention that this chord is in C minor though I don't think it really relates to this question too much.
