working on Kollatz problem (3x+1 problem) I faced with enother hard problem on number theory. the problem is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

we have a number k that is:

k=m*(3^n)-1

where m is odd and m>0, n>0, m and n are integers

we can see that k is even and if we will divide k on 2^x we will make m1 number that is odd. The question is to find x if we know m and n. I'm sorry for my english, I know russian much better :)
