The order of operations
in this section permeates almost all types of mathematical
calculations. You should remember these steps:
First, perform any operations enclosed in
parentheses. Next, perform multiplication and
divisions as they occur by working from left to right.
Finally, perform additions and subtractions
as they occur by working from left to right.
The type of reasoning in which
you first observe a pattern, and then predict outcomes
for future occurrences.
The type of reasoning involves reaching a conclusion
by using a formal structure based on a set of undefined
terms and a set of accepted unproved axioms or premises.
Test the validity of a syllogism
by using Euler circles.
