Deduction is generally an analytical procedure based on the representation of reality. Deduction is divided into three research methods: formal-deductive, conceptual-deductive and argumentative-deductive analysis.


The goal of this method is to draw conclusions about problems or specific issues from formal models.


A formal model is used and analyzed to draw conclusions for facts.
