A question gives the problem find the two arithmetic means between 4 and 19.

The answer is 9 and 14.

2. Relevant equations

(a_{1}+a_{2}+a_{3}+a_{n})/n

3. The attempt at a solution

Logic would dictate that the arithmetic mean would be adding 4 and 19 then dividing by two. Leaving the supposed answer to be 11 and a half.

This is for an academic team, so a step by step answer would be appreciated so that we may learn how to do it later.
