A famous conjecture is the Twin prime conjecture, which states that there are infinitely many "twin primes" - primes which are 2 apart (for example, 11 and 13, or 17 and 19, are twin primes)
The Poincaré Conjecture.
Example sentence for the noun 'conjecture':The editorial about the new park was more conjecture than fact.Example sentence for the verb 'conjecture':Some people like to conjecture about possible life forms on other planets.
A phrase is a group of words based on a noun, a verb, or an adjective, but is not a complete sentence.The word 'conjecture' is both a noun and a verb.Example noun phrases:an unfounded conjecturea conjecture of fantasya well thought out conjectureExample verb phrases:to quickly conjectureto have to conjectureto conjecture with confidence
A counter example is a statement that shows conjecture is false.
Give a counter-example.
An example that proves a conjecture to be false.
It's a counterexample.
There is no logical conjecture that can be made for what could be an irregular polygon with an unknown number of sides. Of course, you could always conjecture anything. For example, that they will taste of strawberries. A conjecture that, I guess, will be disproved quite easily.
A counter example
The Goldbach conjecture is probably one of the best known. The conjecture is that every even number greater than 2 can be expressed as a sum of two primes. T. Oliveira e Silva has confirmed the conjecture for number up to 4*10^18 but, despite many years of effort, the conjecture has not been proved.
Conjecture is a noun.
No, it is a number. A conjecture is a theory.
A conjecture should be testable. You test it and if it fails the test, it is a false conjecture.
A statement that might be true (based on some research or reasoning), but is not proven. Like a hypothesis, but not stated in as formal, or testable, way. So a conjecture is like an educated guess. Example: I heard the sound of a plastic bag, so I conjecture there might be some food!
One possible conjecture is that their sum is 27. The conjecture is patently false, but that does not stop it being a conjecture.
20 (which is an even # greater then 2)=7+13 (which are both prime #s)
