Write a script that prompts the user for an integer (in the range 1 to 10000) and reports?
to reach the value 1. The Collatz sequence is a sequence of positive integers obeying
• if a number in the sequence, n, is even, then the next number in the sequence is
• if a number in the sequence, n, is odd, then the next number in the sequence is
3n + 1.
So, for example, if your user input 10, then your script should produce the value 6
because the sequence
10 → 5 → 16 → 8 → 4 → 2 → 1

First, prompt the user.
Then check whether the input is valid.
After that, you need a loop that will run as long as n does not equal 1.
Inside the loop you need a selection statement (e.g. "if"). Use n mod 2 to determine whether n is even or odd.
After the selection statement but before the end of the loop, you output the value of n.
