A deductive storyline is shaped by its purpose as is deductive problem solving

Deductive problem solving and deductive storylines share some characteristics, but have some important differences.

A deductive problem solving process may have many, many steps that need to be worked through to help you come to your conclusion, which you then need to communicate.

A deductive story has three specific elements supporting the overall answer, or governing idea. It begins with a statement, then a comment on that statement and lastly an inevitable conclusion, which we call the implication or recommendation.
