A Collatz Sequence starts with an integer i that is greater than one.
Normal Form 

Short Form 

If
i
is even: 
then i=i/2. then i=3i+1. 
then i=i/2. then i=(3i+1)/2. 
It has
been shown, but
never proven, that all such
sequences will end in one.
See for yourself.
Enter any integer greater than one, and a Collatz Sequence will be generated.

In the center a graph of the sequence is displayed.
On the right the binary representation of the sequence is displayed
How does the length of the sequence change with i?
