Can we go over the differences between Inductive reasoning and Deductive reasoning?
Inductive reasoning starts with observations and makes generalizations about them. Deductive reasoning starts with generalizations (or hypothesis) and then tests to see if they are true in various examples. For example, if you notice tall people tend to be basketball players, that’s inductive reasoning. However, if you start with the theory that basketball players are tall, you would then see examples to determine whether that is true. That’s deductive reasoning.
