 A075478 Number of iteration that first becomes smaller than the initial value if Collatz-function (A006370) is iterated, starting with numbers of form 64n+27. Corresponds to selection of every 16th term from A074474. 1

 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Remark that initial values of form 64m+r, if r={3,11,19,27,35,43,51,55} provide first-sink-lengths {7,9,7,9,7,9,7,9} respectively; e.g. {64k+19,192k+58,96k+29,288k+88,144k+44,72k+22,36k+11} submerge first below initial value at the 7th term,36k+11<64k+19.
