Different camps had differnt systems for numbering the people who went through there. In Auschwitz there were several ways of separating the people besides their tatoos - they were even sorted by whether they were Jews, Gypsies, POWs or criminals. Each of the prisoners of the camps received a 5-digit number following the initial of the camp he/she had been to first.

 Take any positive whole number not greater than 50. If the number is even, divide it by two. If the number is odd, multiply it by 3, and add 1 to the result. Apply the same method to the resulting number, and continue in this way forming a chain of numbers untill you finally arrive at the number 1.Shown below is a chain of numbers that results from this method if you begin with 15: 15 - 46 - 23 - 70 - 35 - 106 - 53 - 160 - 80 - 40 - 20 - 10 - 5 - 16 - 8 - 4 - 2 - 1. As you can see, the number 15 requires 17 steps to end up at 1. Of the numbers not greater then 50, which takes the longest to reach the number 1?
