"An inductive argument can be affected by acquiring new premises (evidence), but a deductive argument cannot be. For example, this is a reasonably strong inductive argument: ... If the arguer believes that the truth of the premises definitely establishes the truth of the conclusion, then the argument is deductive."
"The term "inductive reasoning" refers to reasoning that takes specific information and makes a broader generalization that is considered probable, allowing for the fact that the conclusion may not be accurate."
