The differences between inferences and assumptions are:
Assumption: This is a piece of information or a belief we take for granted as true. We usually apply this to our thinking to develop an inference.
Inference: This occurs when deciding that something is true in light of some other piece(s) of knowledge (or assumptions) being true or present in the field. It is also known as a conclusion.
Both assumptions and inferences can be logical or not and justified or not.
