What is a counterexample for the conjecture? Conjecture: The product of two positive numbers is greater than the sum of the two numbers.
A. 3 and 5
B. 2 and 2
C. A counterexample exists, but it is not shown above.
D. There is no counterexample. The conjecture is true.
I think its C?

B. 2 and 2

B. 2 and 2 because 2x2=4 and 2+2=4 so the product of the two positive numbers isn't greater than the sum of the same two positive numbers, they are equal.

find the counter example to show that the statement is incorrect when a counting number is 3 and the sum is divided by 2 , the quotient will be an even numbe
