a student is using a geometry program to investigate the midsegments of a triangle. the student uses the program to draw triangle ABC, bisect the sides of the triangle, and draw segments connecting the midpoints to form triangle KLM. the student then uses the program to measure the lengths of the sides of triangle ABC and triangle KLM. After repeating the same construction and measurements on several different triangles, the student conjectures that triangle KLM is similar to triangle ABC with a scale factor of one-half. the process that the student used to create this conjecture is an example of: deductive or inductive reasoning. I believe it is inductive
