Determine whether the argument is an example of inductive reasoning or deductive reasoning. The following equations show that n 2 − n + 11 is a prime number for all counting numbers is = 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 ,â€¦ ( 1 ) 2 − 1 + 11 = 11 n = 1 ( 2 ) 2 − 2 + 11 = 13 n = 2 ( 3 ) 2 − 3 + 11 = 17 n = 3 ( 4 ) 2 − 4 + 11 = 23 n = 4 Note: A prime number is a counting number greater than 1 that has no counting number factors other than itself and 1 . The first 15 prime numbers are 2 , 3 , 5 , 7 , 11 , 13 , 17 , 19 , 23 , 29 , 31 , 37 , 41 , 43 , and 47 .

To determine

Whether tile argument is an example of inductive reasoning or deductive reasoning.

The following equations show that n2n+11 is a prime number for all counting numbers n=1,2,3,4,...... .

(1)21+11=11n=1(2)22+11=13  n=2(3)23+11=17    n=3(4)24+11=23    n=4

Explanation

Given Information:

(1)21+11=11n=1(2)22+11=13  n=2(3)23+11=17    n=3
