An Interesting Math Problem And Bollywood Connection

I came across an interesting Math problem and thought of sharing it here.

It’s called “3x + 1” or The Collatz Conjecture.

The Collatz Conjecture is the simplest math problem no one can solve — it is easy enough for almost anyone to understand but notoriously difficult to solve.

Here is an interesting video on the “3x + 1”

Now where does the Bollywood Connection come in? Well, it’s the 4-2-1 part. If you are a 90’s kid like me, it would immediately ring the bell – the “One Two Ka Four, Four Two Ka One…” song from Ram Lakhan!

In fact some genius even edited a short snippet of the other video and shamelessly plugged in Anil Kapoor in it, to ruin the whole video 🙂 Watch it till the end at your own risk…
