...12, as 7 is to 28 ; or 3 is to 7, ať i2 is to 28. And when four Numbers.are thus Proportional, then **the Product of the Means is equal to the Product of the** Extreams. For 12x7=84 the Product of the Means. And 3x28=84 the Product of the Extreams. Wherefore... | |

...in .if., either continued or interrupted (provided the interruption be between the 2d and 3d term), **the product of the means is equal to the product of the extremes.** EXAMPLE. Let the 4 numbers be 5, 15, 26, and 78 interrupted; then 5 x 78 = 15 x 26= 390. It will be... | |

...ac Or thus, since - z= -. • ba and f = > therefore 1=7. hdbh 68. If 4 quantities are proportional, **the product of the means is equal to the product of the extremes.** Thus suppose a : b : : c : d Then ad = he. For ? = ^ (s+)i and multiplying both fractions by W we have... | |

...nomher to their price, and this must he ohvious from what was said in article 191. 195. Since, in every **proportion, the product of the means is equal to the product of the extremes,** one of these products may he taken for the other. Now if we divide the product of the means hy one... | |

...continued proportion. Thus 6 : 9 : : 10 : 15 : : 8 : 12 is a continued proportion. 63. — In every **proportion, the product of the means is equal to the product of the extremes** — . For if two equal fractions be reduced to a common denomination, their numerators must be equal.... | |

...are read, a is to b as c to d; therefore -r- = —r 2. When four quantities are proportionals, tha **product of the means is equal to the product of the extremes** ; that is, if a ; b ; ' c ; d, then will ad = be. Also, if a ; 6 ; rb ; c, then will ac = 62. Whence... | |

...in a geometrical proportion (Theory of prop. prin. 3d); that is, we have AD : HD = DG : BD ; and as **in every geometrical proportion the product of the means is equal to** that of the extremes (Theory of prop, princ. 8th), we have HD multiplied by DG equal to AD multiplied... | |

...The other principles of the doctrine of proportion may also be demonstrated; as the proposition that **the product of the means is equal to the product of the extremes,** proportion by alternation, or that if the first term be to the second as the third is to the fourth,... | |
