# Oppermann's conjecture

Oppermann's Conjecture concerns the distribution of Prime Numbersplugin-autotooltip__plain plugin-autotooltip_bigPrime Numbers

Since all other whole numbers (except 0) can be produced by multiplying together primes β they must be considered fundamental.

(1), 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31 &etc

There are an infinite number of primes - as proved by Euclid around 300B.C. (β¦
.

It was first suggested in 1877, and has not been proved or disproved since then.

The conjecture states that : for every integer x > 1, there is at least one prime number between x(x β 1) and x2, and at least another prime between x2 and x(x + 1).

Put non-mathematically βIs every pair of a square number and a pronic number (both greater than one) separated by at least one prime?β

It asks : βIs there is a prime number between n2 and (n + 1)2 for every positive integer n. squares?β

It was first presented by French mathematician Adrien-Marie Legendre in the eβ¦
