What is it about induction that you struggle with? Also, do you mean electromagnetic induction, where a varying magnetic field generate a potential difference in a conductor or electrostatic induction as in the operation of a Van der Graaf generator?I need to what is induction as it is so confusing.

Or might you mean induction in mathematics or logic as opposed to deduction?

There are plenty of good articles online that explain what induction is. We can't really help you unless you ask some specific questions.

Electromagnetic induction. It's in post #3.

In the Wikipedia the derivation of the integral form of the induction law from the fundamental (local) laws is correct. When you use this complete formula, there shouldn't be any confusion:
