Inductive Reasoning

The process of arriving at a conclusion based on a set of observations or examples

EXAMPLE: Given the number pattern 1,5,9,13,..., you can use inductive reasoning to determine that the next number in the pattern in 17.

Counterexample

A specific case that shows a conjecture is false.

EXAMPLE: All prime numbers are odd.

Counterexample: 2, a prime number that is not odd.

Conditional Statement

A logical statement that has two parts, if/then

Hypothesis

It's what logically comes first after the "if". The "p" of a conditional statement.

Conclusion

It is what logically comes second after the "then". The "q" of a conditional statement.

Negation

Opposite ( ~ )

Converse

If q, then p.

Inverse

If ~p, then ~q.

Contrapositive

If ~q, then ~p.

Angle Congruence Postulate

Two angles are congruent if and only if their measures are equal.

Segment Congruence Postulate

Two segments are congruent if and only if they have the same length.

Supplement Theorem

If two angles form a linear pair, then they are supplementary.

Ray

One endpoint and all the points of the line on the one side of the endpoint. EXAMPLE: Ray AB (The endpoint is always listed first.)

Opposite Rays

Two collinear rays with the same endpoint. EXAMPLE: Ray AB and Ray AC (The endpoints are the same, ray go in opposite directions.)
