**Reiny**, Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 7:16pm16/x = x/9 , cross-multiply

x^2= 144

x = √144 = 12

check:

16/12 = 4/3

12/9 = 4/3

**Mona**, Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 7:20pmThanks. So the geometric mean for 16 and 9 is 4/3?

**Reiny**, Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 7:44pmNOOO, the geometric mean is 12

I merely showed that 12 is correct

and satisfied your given proportion

a/x = x/b

the 3 numbers are:

16 , 12 , 9 , with 12 as the geometric mean
