One possible conjecture: The product is always an odd number. Another possible conjecture: The product is always greater than either of them. Another possible conjecture: Both odd numbers are always factors of the product. Another possible conjecture: The product is never a multiple of ' 2 '. Another possible conjecture: The product is always a real, rational number. Another possible conjecture: The product is always an integer.

Let's take a look at this. For any integer n, 2n always be even, then the next consecutive number 2n + 1 must be odd. Let add them first, 2n + 2n + 1 = 4n + 1 = 2(2n) + 1 So their sum is odd, since every even number multiplied by 2 is also even. Let's multiplied them, 2n(2n + 1) = (2n)^2 + 2n Their product is even, since every even number raised in the second power is also even, and the sum of two even numbers is even too. So the answer is that when the sum of two numbers can be odd, their product is an even number. (note that the sum of two odd numbers is even)

If two numbers are reciprocals, then their product is 1. If the product of two numbers is 1, then they are reciprocals.

At least one of the two numbers has to be even, but both can be even.

No such numbers exist; the product of two odd numbers is always odd.

The product of two odd numbers is always odd.

Any two odd numbers will have an odd product and an even sum.

The product of odd number is always odd.

Even

I guess you mean "product" - the product of two odd numbers is odd. (For example, 3x3=9, 5x3=15, etc.

The product of two odd numbers is never even.

no

The product of any two odd numbers is an odd number. The product means that it is the outcome of a multiplication. 3 * 5 = 15, 5 * 7 = 35.

an odd number

No two odd numbers can sum to 7.

My conjecture (an opinion based on incomplete information) is that the product of two odd numbers is 22. There is no requirement for a conjecture to be true.
