Deductive logic

Dog with 3 legsThe form of logical reasoning used when solving a problem or crafting an argument story that involves deducing a solution from a series of premises. The elements of a deductive story are dependent upon each other with one naturally leading to the next. If the links between the ideas in the deductive chain are not strong, the deduction will be flawed.

The example to the left illustrates a simple fallacy that demonstrates this point.
