A121480 Take b(0)=n, for i>0 if b(i-1) is odd prime then b(i)=(b(i-1)+1)/2 otherwise b(i)=b(i-1)+1. For all n sequence b(i) ends with 2. The sequence gives a(n) = a number of steps from n to 2, a(n)=i when b(i)=2. 0

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..76.

EXAMPLE

a(8)=9 because b(0)=8, b(1)=9, b(2)=10, 11, 6, 7, 4, 5, 3, b(9)=2;

a(10)=7 because b(0)=10, b(1)=11, 6, 7, 4, 5, 3, b(7)=2, etc
