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)

### What is a example that shows a conjecture?

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.

### Make a conjecture about the sum of the first 25 positive even numbers?

My conjecture is that the sum is 67.
A conjecture does not have to be true, or even plausible. You
should be able to test it. If it is found to be true then in is no
longer a conjecture, if it is found to be false, it is rejected -
and so no longer a conjecture. If it cannot be proved either way,
it remains a conjecture.

### What is a conjecture for multiplying two odd numbers?

One possible conjecture: The product is always an odd
number.
Another possible conjecture: The product is always greater than
either of them.
Another possible conjecture: Both odd numbers are always factors
of the product.
Another possible conjecture: The product is never a multiple of
' 2 '.
Another possible conjecture: The product is always a real,
rational number.
Another possible conjecture: The product is always an
integer.
