An interesting unsolved problem in mathematics concerns what is called the “
hailstone sequence . " The following algorithm defines this sequence : 1. Start
with any positive integer . 2. If that number is odd , then multiply it by three and
Identify a starting number for which the hailstone sequence is at least 30
numbers long . What is the length of the sequence ? If you add or subtract 1 from
this starting number , how long are the hailstone sequences associated with the
As you might imagine , there are also applications in which user input must be
handled as a sequence of separate numbers . For example , Chapter 9 asked
you to create a Web page named grades.html that computed a student's grade in
