• Like everyone else said: Yes, it is.

I'd verify that by comparing how far away from 7 each of the other two numbers is:

13 - 7 = 6  . . . distance from 7 to 13

16 - 7 = 9  . . . distance from 7 to 16

6/9 = 2/3  . . . ratio of (distance to 13) over (distance to 16)

So the distance to 13 is indeed 2/3 of the distance to 16 (from 7 in both cases, of course.)
