Collatz Conjecture for 5632

Enter Natural Number for Collatz Conjecture (1,2,...,∞):


  

Using the Collatz Conjecture, show how we get to "oneness" from 5632

We start with n = 5632

Step 1 → n = 5632

Since 5632 is even, we divide by 2 to get 5632 ÷ 2 = 2816

Step 2 → n = 2816

Since 2816 is even, we divide by 2 to get 2816 ÷ 2 = 1408

Step 3 → n = 1408

Since 1408 is even, we divide by 2 to get 1408 ÷ 2 = 704

Step 4 → n = 704

Since 704 is even, we divide by 2 to get 704 ÷ 2 = 352

Step 5 → n = 352

Since 352 is even, we divide by 2 to get 352 ÷ 2 = 176

Step 6 → n = 176

Since 176 is even, we divide by 2 to get 176 ÷ 2 = 88

Step 7 → n = 88

Since 88 is even, we divide by 2 to get 88 ÷ 2 = 44

Step 8 → n = 44

Since 44 is even, we divide by 2 to get 44 ÷ 2 = 22

Step 9 → n = 22

Since 22 is even, we divide by 2 to get 22 ÷ 2 = 11

Step 10 → n = 11

Since 11 is odd, we take 3(11) + 1 → 33 + 1 = 34

Step 11 → n = 34

Since 34 is even, we divide by 2 to get 34 ÷ 2 = 17

Step 12 → n = 17

Since 17 is odd, we take 3(17) + 1 → 51 + 1 = 52

Step 13 → n = 52

Since 52 is even, we divide by 2 to get 52 ÷ 2 = 26

Step 14 → n = 26

Since 26 is even, we divide by 2 to get 26 ÷ 2 = 13

Step 15 → n = 13

Since 13 is odd, we take 3(13) + 1 → 39 + 1 = 40

Step 16 → n = 40

Since 40 is even, we divide by 2 to get 40 ÷ 2 = 20

Step 17 → n = 20

Since 20 is even, we divide by 2 to get 20 ÷ 2 = 10

Step 18 → n = 10

Since 10 is even, we divide by 2 to get 10 ÷ 2 = 5

Step 19 → n = 5

Since 5 is odd, we take 3(5) + 1 → 15 + 1 = 16

Step 20 → n = 16

Since 16 is even, we divide by 2 to get 16 ÷ 2 = 8

Step 21 → n = 8

Since 8 is even, we divide by 2 to get 8 ÷ 2 = 4

Step 22 → n = 4

Since 4 is even, we divide by 2 to get 4 ÷ 2 = 2

Step 23 → n = 2

Since 2 is even, we divide by 2 to get 2 ÷ 2 = 1
