This lesson is on inductive reasoning. For inductive reasoning, we deal with what is called conjectures; a conjecture is an educated guess. When you look at several different situations, or maybe previous experiences, to come up with a final conclusion, then that would be inductive reasoning. So when you have repeated observations, or you look at patterns, those things would be considered inductive reasoning. Sometimes, the conjecture is not true. To prove this, we find a counterexample. A counterexample is the opposite of what you are trying to prove. Remember, you cannot prove something true just by giving an example, because there could be a counterexample that you havent thought of yet.
*These practice questions are only helpful when you work on them offline on a piece of paper and then use the solution steps function to check your answer.
