Can anyone PROVE the x+1 problem?? 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The problem is this. x_1 is defined to be x_1=m (where m<0). Assuming x_n defined, define x_n+1 to be (x_n)/2 if x_n is even or (x_n)+1 if odd. Prove that this sequence eventually takes the value of 1 no matter what m you choose. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution None of my attempts have come close. I know I need to formulate a theorem involving the sequence and then prove my assertion. Help someone pleaseeee. Been working on this for hours.
