@XanderHenderson As soon as I cast the last deletion vote on the question, one of the answers shows an undeletion vote. Out of curiosity: (1) How come such an undeletion vote could have been cast before the deletion took place? (2) If the answer gets 3 undeletion votes, will the question and the answer be undeleted?

Inspired by the Collatz Conjecture, I have explored a variant that introduces an additional element x, altering the operation for odd numbers and exploring convergence towards the numbers 36-18-9. Proposition: We define the iterative function $f(n)$ for $n \in \mathbb{N}$ and a parameter $x \in \... 4 hours later… 6:57 AM Wrong answer, please delete: math.stackexchange.com/a/4873406/42969 2 hours later… 9:05 AM Wrong answer, one final delete vote needed: math.stackexchange.com/a/4873756/42969 3 hours later… 12:19 PM Questions like this has been asked so many times, but surprisingly such type is not listed in List of Generalisations of Common Questions. 2 hours later… @Ѕᴀᴀᴅ The answer was deleted and undeleted a couple of times (by the author) a couple of times before the question was ultimately deleted. 2:35 PM @XanderHenderson Thanks for the input. 0 Both the$5x+1$and$7x+1$variant of the Collatz sequence are conjectured to have large number of divergent trajectory. Here, i combined the two. As always, when you encounter even$x$, you apply$x\rightarrow x/2$, but if you encounter odd$x$, you have the option of applying either$x \rightar...

Dv/D dupe of big FAQ with high-rep cherry picking, nothing novel

@BillDubuque how is this a duplicate?
I think its a bit of too much stretch to call question a duplicate because it follows from two similar questions

@Jakobian It is no "stretch" by any means. Rather, as explained in the closing comment if follows immediately (and obviously) from the two linked basic results.
