Objective

Start with any number and get to 1 using just two rules. It seems to always work…

The Collatz Conjecture conjecture states that, if you begin with any number and follow these two rules, you'll always end up at 1:

  • If a number is odd: multiply by three, and add one.
  • If a number is even: divide it by two.
