Subject: Rhind papyrus problem about harmonic mean
I have been told that problem 76 of the papyrus is about making loaves from different substances for which the solution is the harmonic mean. I have been unable to find the problem on line or a good source off-line. If someone knows the problem (and perhaps a corrected reference) I would love to have it, or if you know a source, that will also be great.
Thanks for any knowledge you can share.
