COMMENTS

Impure hailstone numbers are those which occur in the trajectories of smaller numbers. Thus 5 is impure since it occurs in the trajectory of 3.

FORMULA

a(n) = A006577(k), where k = the pure hailstone numbers from A061641

EXAMPLE

A061641 (pure hailstone numbers) = 0, 1, 3, 6, 7, 9, 12...; as k in A006577(k), which gives the numbers of iterative steps: 0, 0, 7, 8, 16, 19, 9,... For "3" the trajectory has 7 terms: (10, 5, 16, 8, 4, 2, 1).

CROSSREFS
