One conjecture stronger than another?

  1. Nov 5, 2015 #1
    So, I was reading the Wikipedia page for Legendre's Conjecture and I came across this:
    "Two stronger conjectures, Andrica's conjecture and Oppermann's conjecture"
    My question is this: What does it mean for one conjecture to be 'stronger' than another?

    Usually it means that if the stronger conjecture is true then the weaker one is true as well. But they are not equivalent.
