Expert verified
The mean proportional between 4 and 16 is 8.
See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Find the product of the two numbers

First, we have to find the product of 4 and 16. $Product = 4 * 16$

## Step 2: Calculate the product

Now calculate the product of the two numbers. $Product = 4 * 16 = 64$

## Step 3: Find the mean proportional (square root of the product)

The mean proportional between the two numbers is the square root of the product we obtained in Step 2. $Mean\ Proportional = \sqrt{64}$

## Step 4: Calculate the mean proportional

Calculate the square root of 64 to find the mean proportional. $Mean\ Proportional = \sqrt{64} = 8$ So, the mean proportional between 4 and 16 is 8.
