Whereas arithmetic has a protracted background, in lots of methods it was once now not till the ebook of Euclid's parts that it grew to become an summary technology. Babylonian arithmetic, the subject of the 1st bankruptcy, principally handled counting and the point of interest during this publication is at the notations the Babylonians used to symbolize numbers, either integers and fractions.

The word induce comes from a Latin term meaning to lead. Explain what leading has to do with inductive reasoning. 64. Describe what is meant by deductive reasoning. Give an example. 65. Give an example of a decision that you made recently in which the method of reasoning you used to reach the decision was induction. Describe your reasoning process. Critical Thinking Exercises Make Sense? In Exercises 66–69, determine whether each statement makes sense or does not make sense, and explain your reasoning.

46. Select a number. Add 3. Double the result. Add 4. Divide by 2. Subtract the original selected number. In Exercises 47–52, use inductive reasoning to predict the next line in each sequence of computations. Then use a calculator or perform the arithmetic by hand to determine whether your conjecture is correct. 47. 2 * 2 3 * 1 + 2 + 3 = 2 4 * 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 2 5 * 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 2 1 + 2 = 3 4 5 6 12 ​ ​C ha p t er 1 ​ ​ ​Problem Solving and Critical Thinking 48. 6 * 3 2 9 * 4 3 + 6 + 9 = 2 12 * 5 3 + 6 + 9 + 12 = 2 15 * 6 3 + 6 + 9 + 12 + 15 = 2 3 + 6 = 49.
