%N Odd numbers producing 3 odd numbers in the Collatz (3x+1) iteration.

%C One of the odd numbers is always 1. So besides a(n), there is one other odd number, A198585(n), which is a term in A002450.

%C Sequences A228871 and A228872 show that there are two sequences here: the odd numbers in order and out of order. - _T. D. Noe_, Sep 12 2013

%e The Collatz iteration of 113 is 113, 340, 170, 85, 256, 128, 64, 32, 16, 8, 4, 2, 1, which shows that 113, 85, and 1 are the three odd terms.
