# Inductive Reasoning

How to solve inductive reasoning problems: meaning, examples, and their solutions.

## What is it?

Inductive reasoning is a reasoning

that starts from specific examples

to get a general conclusion,

usually by finding a **pattern**

from the specific examples.

## Example 1

In this sequence, there's a pattern:

(last term) + 2 = (this term)

So the next term is, 7 + 2, 9.

## Example 2

In this sequence, there's a pattern:

(sum of the last two terms) = (this term)

So the next term is, 5 + 8, 13.

This sequence is called the Fibonacci sequence.
