Re: Inference!

When you pass from a statement or set of statements to a new statement by logical deduction, you are said to infer the new statement. Example:

(i) All dogs have four legs.
(ii) Rover is a dog.
(ii) Therefore Rover has four legs.

The last statement is an inference from the first two.
