# Logical Reasoning

##### When you are solving a problem you can use a strategy that is called LOGICAL REASONING. Logical thinking exercises help kids learn the process of elimination or deductive thinking. Most problems give a variety of conditions and you must use an "if"-"then" approach. It's important that you read the whole problem, and choose the best hint or clue before starting to solve the problem. When practicing logic with reasoning making a chart or drawing a picture are good strategies. Now here is an everyday problem to solve using Logical Reasoning.
