Inductive reasoning is to go from a particular case to the general, as in generalization. Deductive reasoning is to apply a general theory to a particular situation, as in specialization.

Hope this helps.

I versus D Reasoning
 
Inductive reasoning (as opposed to deductive reasoning or abductive reasoning) is reasoning in which the premises are viewed as supplying strong evidence for the truth of the conclusion.

While the conclusion of a deductive argument is certain, the truth of the conclusion of an inductive argument is probable, based upon the evidence given.
