## What does conjecture mean?

Definition of conjecture

(Entry 1 of 2) 1a : **inference formed without proof or sufficient evidence**. b : a conclusion deduced by surmise or guesswork The criminal’s motive remains a matter of conjecture.

## What is the meaning of conjecture and example?

A conjecture is

**a good guess or an idea about a pattern**. For example, make a conjecture about the next number in the pattern 2,6,11,15… The terms increase by 4, then 5, and then 6. Conjecture: the next term will increase by 7, so it will be 17+7=24.## What is conjecture sentence?

Definition of Conjecture.

**an opinion or idea formed without proof or sufficient evidence**. Examples of Conjecture in a sentence. 1. Since the police have not given a statement yet, the reporter can only make a conjecture about the crisis.## What is pure conjecture?

(formal)

**A statement or an idea which is unproven, but is thought to be true; a guess**. I explained it, but it is pure conjecture whether he understood, or not. (formal) A supposition based upon incomplete evidence; a hypothesis.## How do you make a conjecture?

Therefore, when you are writing a conjecture two things happen:

**You must notice some kind of pattern or make some kind of observation**. For example, you noticed that the list is counting up by 2s. You form a conclusion based on the pattern that you observed, just like you concluded that 14 would be the next number.## Is conject a word?

Conject definition

(obsolete) **To throw together, or to throw**.

## What is a conjecture or conclusion?

In mathematics, a conjecture is

**a conclusion or a proposition that is proffered on a tentative basis without proof**.## What’s a conjecture in math?

A conjecture is

**a mathematical statement that has not yet been rigorously proved**. Conjectures arise when one notices a pattern that holds true for many cases. However, just because a pattern holds true for many cases does not mean that the pattern will hold true for all cases.## How do you make a conjecture in math?

It is both a sign of their thoughtfulness and the possible start of a new and better theory. A counterexample may disprove a conjecture, but it does not mean that the claim is always false.

**A conjecture may be nearly always true**.## What is a conjectural statement?

A statement that is conjectural is

**based on information that is not certain or complete**. [formal] There is something undeniably conjectural about such claims. Synonyms: speculative, theoretical, tentative, hypothetical More Synonyms of conjectural.## What is a valid conjecture?

A conjecture is

**an â€śeducated guessâ€ť that is based on examples in a pattern**. Numerous examples may make you believe a conjecture. However, no number of examples can actually prove a conjecture. It is always possible that the next example would show that the conjecture is false.## What is conjecture reasoning?

A conjecture is

**an unproven statement that is based on observations**. You use inductive reasoning when you find a pattern in specific cases and then write a conjecture for the general case.## How do you justify a conjecture?

## What is a false conjecture?

## Is a conjecture a generalization?

Generalization is certain kind of conjecture, which is obtained from particular to general reasoning (Yerushalmy, 1993). Further,

**a generalization based on inductive reasoning is called a conjecture**(Ramussen and Miceli, 2008).
