Collatz Conjecture

In Collatz Conjecture's sequence,

                             f(n)= n/2 ( if n is even)
                                        3n+1 ( if n is odd)

Finally, we reach to the awesome number 1. This is the property of oneness.

The thing i want to say through this note is that, instead of 3n+1, we can also use n+1/2, which we also lead to the awesome number 1.

Comments are appreciated and I want to about this sequence.

The sequence in which \(f(n)=\frac{n+1}{2}\) for odd \(n\) is strictly decreasing, and will always reach \(1\). Alex Li · 1 year, 7 months ago

@Alex Li Then what about 3n+1 @Alex Li Sudhir Aripirala · 1 year, 7 months ago

@Sudhir Aripirala The actual \(3n+1\) problem is still unsolved, but it has been tested and verified for all values up to \(5.76\times10^{18}\). Alex Li · 1 year, 7 months ago

@Alex Li We can also use n+1 @Alex Li Sudhir Aripirala · 1 year, 7 months ago
