### Conjecture Meaning and Definition in Wikipedia

A conjecture is an idea in mathematics that appears likely to be true but that has not been proven to be true.

After a conjecture is proven to be true, it becomes a theorem.

Until recently, one of the most famous conjectures was Fermat's Last Theorem. The name was incorrect, because although Fermat said he had a proof for it, none could be found in his notes. In 1992, British mathematician Andrew Wiles found a proof for it, making it a theorem and not a conjecture.

Other famous conjectures include:
