Cycle bounds Collatz Conjecture I have an update about what I was trying to find for so long. (I am still kinda stuck with finishing my proof on a few things.) I think I said when I will find a limit to x by y I will share it x = number of even values in a cycle y = number of odd values in a cycle x<8/9*floor(1.5^y)y I know it's really high but it works and is helpful on a few cases.

anyone with lower bounds??? i think this is the best results positive cycles: x = roundup ( y * ln3/ln2 ) negative cycles: x = rounddown ( y * ln3/ln2 ) (1,2) (1,2,4) (5,14,7,20,10) (−17,−50,−25,−74,−37,−110,−55,−16 4 ,−82,−41,−122,−61,−182,−91,−272,−1 36,−68,−34)
