2.1 Using Patterns and Inductive Reasoning Target Use inductive reasoning to identify patterns and make conjectures.

inductive reasoning conjecture Vocabulary

Find the next item in the pattern. Example 3: Identifying a Pattern In this pattern, the figure rotates 90° counter- clockwise each time. The next figure is.

Check It Out! Example 4 Find the next item in the pattern 0.4, 0.04, 0.004, … When reading the pattern from left to right, the next item in the pattern has one more zero after the decimal point. The next item would have 3 zeros after the decimal point, or 0.0004.

When several examples form a pattern and you assume the pattern will continue, you are applying inductive reasoning. Inductive reasoning is the process of reasoning that a rule or statement is true because specific cases are true. You may use inductive reasoning to draw a conclusion from a pattern. A statement you believe to be true based on inductive reasoning is called a conjecture.

Complete the conjecture. Example 5: Making a Conjecture The sum of two positive numbers is ?. The sum of two positive numbers is positive. List some examples and look for a pattern. 1 + 1 = 23.14 + 0.01 = 3.15 3,900 + 1,000,017 = 1,003,917

Check It Out! Example 6 The product of two odd numbers is ?. Complete the conjecture. The product of two odd numbers is odd. List some examples and look for a pattern. 1  1 = 1 3  3 = 9 5  7 = 35

Example 7: Biology Application The cloud of water leaving a whale’s blowhole when it exhales is called its blow. A biologist observed blue-whale blows of 25 ft, 29 ft, 27 ft, and 24 ft. Another biologist recorded humpback- whale blows of 8 ft, 7 ft, 8 ft, and 9 ft. Make a conjecture based on the data. Heights of Whale Blows Height of Blue-whale Blows25292724 Height of Humpback-whale Blows 8789

Example 7: What conjectures can we make? Potential conjectures: The height of a blue-whale’s blow is greater than a humpback whale’s blow. -or- The height of a blue whale’s blow is about three times greater than a humpback whale’s blow. Heights of Whale Blows Height of Blue-whale Blows25292724 Height of Humpback-whale Blows 8789

Check It Out! Example 8 Make a conjecture about the lengths of male and female whales based on the data. In 5 of the 6 pairs of numbers above the female is longer. Conjecture: Female whales are longer than male whales. Average Whale Lengths Length of Female (ft) 495150485147 Length of Male (ft) 4745444648

To show that a conjecture is false, you have to find only one example in which the conjecture is not true. This case is called a counterexample. To show that a conjecture is always true, you must prove it. A counterexample can be a drawing, a statement, or a number.

Inductive Reasoning 1. Look for a pattern. 2. Make a conjecture. (use complete sentences) 3. Prove the conjecture or find a counterexample.

Lesson Quiz Find the next item in each pattern. 1. 0.7, 0.07, 0.007, … 2. 0.0007 Determine if each conjecture is true. If false, give a counterexample. 3. The quotient of two negative numbers is a positive number. 4. Every prime number is odd. 5. Two supplementary angles are not congruent. 6. The square of an odd integer is odd. false; 2 true false; 90° and 90° true
