I used proc means to calculate mean values of a variable. And now I want to use the mean values to calculate other variables.
How can I make the mean values a new variable in SAS statement?

It will help to provide an example of what you are doing for some example start data, the proc means code and how you want to actually use the resulting values from proc means.
Proc means supports an output statement to create a data set with the requested statistics.
Or learn about ODS output to capture data from table output.

So I used
proc means data=have;
Then in the output, I have
Variable n mean std error
new 1176 3.6 0.97
Then I want to use the mean value of 3.6 to calculate another variable called MP;
this is possible to do?

Where is "proportion" from? If it is in your data set HAVE then better is to show us what the data set looks like.
Best is to provide data step code to create your data set and an example of the result(s).

I would guess this is what you are referring to:
proc mean data=have1 noprint;
output out=stats mean=mean_amount;
if _n_=1 then set stats (keep=mean_amount);
*** do some calculations here;
The data set STATS has one observation, which includes the variable MEAN_AMOUNT. Its value will become part of every observation in the data set WANT.
