**Concepts**

### In inductive reasoning what is assumed about a pattern?

It is the conjecture that

- Wh
- Inductive reasoning assumes that an observed pattern will continue. This may or may not be true.
- Inductive reasoning can lead to conjectures that seem likely but are unproven.
- A single counterexample is enough to disprove a conjecture.
