...the other product must form the means. 328. Three quantities are said to be in CONTINUED PROPORTION when the ratio of the first to the second is equal to the ratio of the second to the third. Thus a, b, с are in continued proportion if a : b = b : c. . The quantity b is called a MEAN PKOPOBTIONAL...
