1 of 2

In the given proportion, the extremes are marked red and the means are marked blue

$\begin{equation*} \begin{split} \frac{\textcolor{#c34632}{1}}{\textcolor{#4257b2}{3}} = \frac{\textcolor{#4257b2}{2}}{\textcolor{#c34632}{6}}, \end{split} \end{equation*}$

therefore, the extremes are numbers $1$ and $6$, while the means are numbers $3$ and $2$.
