An opinion, or judgment, formed on defective or presumptive evidence; probable inference; surmise; guess; suspicion.

To arrive at by conjecture; to infer on slight evidence; to surmise; to guess; to form, at random, opinions concerning.

To make conjectures; to surmise; to guess; to infer; to form an opinion; to imagine.

a preliminary statement or hypothesis that something is true; the statement may later be confirmed or disproved through observation or testing

A thought about the future that falls short of a prediction. A low probability is implied: a conjecture is something seems unlikely to happen, though perhaps desirable.

a tentative solution inferred from collected data.

a hypothesis that has been formed by speculating or conjecturing (usually with little hard evidence); "speculations about the outcome of the election"; "he dismissed it as mere conjecture"

a message expressing an opinion based on incomplete evidence

reasoning that involves the formation of conclusions from incomplete evidence

to believe especially on uncertain or tentative grounds; "Scientists supposed that large dinosaurs lived in swamps"

a broad statement setting forth a theoretical proposition

a claim that we believe is likely to be true but have not yet proven true

a formula , deduction rule , induction rule , or operator theory that has been entered by a prove command, but whose proof is not yet complete

a statement which, after experimentation with many examples seems plausible

a statement which, although much evidence can be found to support it, has not been proved to be either true or false

a statement whose truth value is unknown

a suggestion of a possible theorem which has not yet been proven

a theorem before it has been proved)

A statement believed to be true but not proved.

means a guess that is not based on sufficient evidence.

inference or judgment based on inconclusive or incomplete information.

A statement that is shown to be true or false. A conjecture is usually developed by examining several specific situations.

Inference or judgment based on inconclusive or incomplete evidence; guesswork.

A conjecture is an educated guess.

A generalization made as a result of inductive reasoning (Lesson 1.1).

An inference drawn from observed patterns in several examples.

An educated guess. A mathematical statement, thought to be true, which has neither been proven nor refuted by counterexample.

To make a prediction or a statement, based upon guesswork and thought to be true.

In mathematics, a conjecture is a mathematical statement which appears likely to be true, but has not been formally proven to be true under the rules of mathematical logic. Once a conjecture is formally proven true it is elevated to the status of theorem and may be used afterwards without risk in the construction of other formal mathematical proofs. Until that time, mathematicians may use the conjecture on a provisional basis, but any resulting work is itself conjectural until the underlying conjecture is cleared up.
