Here you'll learn; with the help of video and instructor’s hand writing, about two basic types of reasoning called inductive and deductive reasoning. ‘Inductive Reasoning’ is the process of observing data, recognizing patterns, and making generalizations from the observations. The generalization used in inductive reasoning is called a conjecture. ‘Deductive Reasoning’ is the process of demonstrating that if certain statements are accepted as true, then other statements can be shown to follow from them. Both are important to understand as Geometry often deals with proofs and proofs are based on logical reasoning which follow these two basic types.
