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

%C Sequence A198584 gives the first term of the Collatz sequence having exactly 3 odd numbers. This sequence is the subset of A198584 for which the second odd number is smaller than the first.

%e The number 13 has the Collatz iteration {13, 40, 20, 10, 5, 16, 8, 4, 2, 1}, which has three odd numbers in decreasing order {13, 5, 1}.
