Question

# Show the conjecture is false by finding a counterexample. If a + b = 0, then a = b = 0.

Hint:

### Take 2 values for a and b and then check.

## The correct answer is: Hence we disproved the conjecture

### Complete step by step solution:

Here, consider a= - 2 and b = 2

Then the sum a + b = - 2 + 2 = 0

Here, a ≠ b ≠ 0

Hence we disproved the conjecture.
