A294748 Define one of the generalized Syracuse sequences starting with a positive odd integer 2*k+1=x(1), then if x(i) is an odd prime set x(i+1)=2*x(i)+1, if x(i) is odd not prime set x(i+1)=3*x(i)+1, if x(i) is even then set x(i+1)=x(i)/2.  This sequence gives the positive odd integers 2*k+1=x(1) for sequences reaching x(i)=1. 3

COMMENTS

The sequence of positive odd integers not in this sequence begins {61, 81, 123, 139, ...}. When x(1) is any of these, the sequence x(i) enters a cycle of 931 values x(i) = x(i+931)=1163.
