The Simplest Math Problem No One Can Solve

Posted by in category: mathematics

Multiply an odd number by an odd number and then add 1 always gives an even number.

Divide an even number by 2 gives an odd number half of the time and an even number half of the time.

Therefore these formulae leans towards even numbers as the output and hence if you do the calculation enough times, you will eventually end up in the 4−2−1 loop.
