%N Conjectured record-breaking values, for ascending positive integers k, of the maximal element of the primitive cycles of positive integers under iteration by the 3x-k function.

%C A cycle is called primitive if its elements are not a common multiple of the elements of another cycle.

%C The 3x-k function T_k is defined by T_k(x) = x/2 if x is even, (3x-k)/2 if x is odd, where GCD(k,6)=1.

%Y k = A226684(n). The smallest integer in the T_k cycle associated with a(n) is A226685(n).

%Y Cf. A226624, A226667.

%K nonn
