A075481


Number of iteration that first becomes smaller than the initial value if Collatzfunction (A006370) is iterated, starting with numbers of form 64n+47. Corresponds to selection of every 16th term from A074474.

COMMENTS

Remark that initial values of form 64m+r, if r={3,11,19,27,35,43,51,55} provide firstsinklengths {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.

FORMULA

a(n)=A075473[64n+47], n=0, ..., 256


EXAMPLE

n=2: 64n+47=175,list={175,526,263,790,395,1186,593,1780, 890,445,1336,668,334,167,502,251....}, i.e. the 14th term=167 is the first that <175, the initial value, so a(2)=14.
