What do we know about a sound argument Weegy:
A "valid" argument is one in which the truth of the conclusion necessarily follows on the truth of the premises, given the rules of deduction defined within a logical system. [ The notion of a "sound" argument is that it is "valid" AND the premises are, in fact, "true".
By this definition, then, to call an argument "sound", you are saying that the premises are "true", the logic is "valid", and the conclusion is therefore necessarily "true".
Thats what you know about the conclusion of a sound argument and why you know it. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/?qid=20060905202427AAogZGC

what is abductive reasoning?Weegy:
Abduction: (Gr. apagoge) In Aristotle's logic a syllogism whose major premiss is certain but whose minor premiss is only probable.
Probability is not knowledge.
"B. [ The Probability-Relation
Probability presents itself as a special relation between the premisses and the conclusion of an argument, namely when the premisses are true but not completely sufficient to condition the truth of the conclusion. A probable inference must however be logical, even though its result is not certain, for its premisses must be a true sign of its conclusion. The probability-relation may take three aspects: it is inductive, probable or presumptive. "

what is deductive reasoning?Weegy:
Deductive reasoning, also called deductive logic, is reasoning which constructs or evaluates deductive arguments. Deductive arguments are attempts to show that a conclusion necessarily follows from a set of premises or hypotheses. [ A deductive argument is valid if the conclusion does follow necessarily from the premises, i.e., if the conclusion must be true provided that the premises are true. A deductive argument is sound if it is valid and its premises are true. Deductive arguments are valid or invalid, sound or unsound. Deductive reasoning is a method of gaining knowledge. An example of a deductive argument:
All men are mortal
Socrates is a man
Therefore, Socrates is mortal
The first premise states that all objects classified as "men" have the attribute "mortal". The second premise states that "Socrates" is classified as a man ? a member of the set "men". The conclusion states that "Socrates" must be mortal because he inherits this attribute from his classification as a man. ] Auto answered|Score .6|Neon Aloo|Points 635|User:
what is inductive reasoning?Weegy:
The equation, [ "the gravitational force between two objects equals the gravitational constant times the product of the masses divided by the distance between them squared," has allowed us to describe the rate of fall of all objects we have observed.
The gravitational force between two objects equals the gravitational constant times the product of the masses divided by the distance between them squared.
The conclusion of this argument is not absolutely certain, even given the premise. At speeds we normally experience, Newtonian mechanics holds quite well. But at speeds approaching that of light, the Newtonian system is not accurate and the conclusion in that case would be false. However, since, in most cases that we experience, the premise as stated would usually lead to the conclusion given, we are logical in calling this argument an instance of strong induction. ] Auto answered|Score .5359|MABOO11|Points 655|User:
