Find the harmonic mean of $$$12$$$, $$$17$$$.


The harmonic mean of data is given by the formula $$$H = \frac{n}{\sum_{i=1}^{n} \frac{1}{x_{i}}}$$$, where $$$n$$$ is the number of values and $$$x_i, i=\overline{1..n}$$$ are the values themselves.

Since we have $$$2$$$ points, $$$n = 2$$$.

The sum of the reciprocals of the values is $$$\frac{1}{12} + \frac{1}{17} = \frac{29}{204}$$$.

Therefore, the harmonic mean is $$$H = \frac{2}{\frac{29}{204}} = \frac{408}{29}$$$.


The harmonic mean is $$$\frac{408}{29}\approx 14.068965517241379$$$A.
