Never; let x and x 1 1 be consecutive positive integers. The average of the numbers is } x 1 ( x 2 1 1) } or } 2 x 2 1 1 } 0 ¬ x 2 1 x 0 ¬ } 4 x 2 1 4 4 x 1 1 } x 2 1 x 0 ¬ x 2 1 x 1 } 1 4 } 0 Þ ¬ } 1 4 } Since 0 Þ ¬ } 1 4 } ,the first equation is never true. The average of the numbers is not the geometric mean of the numbers. 36. Always; let a and b be positive integers, and let x be the geometric mean of a 2 and b 2 . } a x 2 } 5 ¬ } b x 2 } a 2 b 2 5 ¬ x 2 ( ab ) 2 5 ¬ x 2 ab 5 ¬ x Because a and b are positive integers, their product x is a positive integer. 37.
