Conjecture and Theorem

Conjecture can be best defined as a hypothesis about a mathematical rule. It is usually created after having witnessed a certain outcome in multiple specific cases. After countless trials are taken to see the validity of a conjecture, if it is proven to be true, it becomes a theorem. A theorem is defined as a conjecture that is proven to be true due to mathematical reasoning.
