440 Hz tuning and half step down...

Quick question....

If standard tuning is 440Hz for A what would the Hz be for the A string tuned a half step down?

415Hz (5 fret on the High E string) - also known as baroque tuning, the A string will be 207.5Hz which will correspond to Ab on a tuner.

From what i was able to find, if A = 440 Hz, G# = 415.30 Hz
