    Answer: The value of the integer that was removed = 4

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Sum of n values= Mean x n

    Given: n = 7 , Mean = 16

    Let x= integer removed.

    Sum of remaining 6 integers = 6

    \Rightarrow\ x+108 = 16\times7\\\\\Rihghtarrow\ x+108= 112\\\\\Rightarrow\ x=112-108\\\\\Rightarrow\ x= 4

    Hence, the value of the integer that was removed = 4
