...d, we have ad=bc. But a and d are the extremes, and 6 and c are the means. Hence, In any proportion, the product of the means is equal to the product of the extremes. (п). Suppose we have the equation ad=bc. If we divide both members by b and d, we have — = —,... ## The American Philosophical Arithmetic: Designed for the Use of Advanced ...
