Ruby Murray (March 29, 1935 – December 17, 1996, Torquay, England) was a popular singer from Northern Ireland.

Murray was born on the Donegall Road in south Belfast. Her voice's unique sound was a result of an operation on her throat in early childhood. She toured as a child singer, and first appeared on television at the age of 12.

Her first single, 'Heartbeat' reached the UK top 5 in 1954. 'Softly, Softly', her second single, reached No.1 the following year. That song was one of five in the Top Twenty in the same week in March — a record which still stands to this day

 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?
