NestWhile


Hello!

I know this is a simple question, hope someone can help me out.....

If I define the function

f[n_] := If[EvenQ[n], n/2, 3n + 1]


I can then apply NestList and generate a nice number loop......

NestList[f, 7, 23]

I want to use NestWhileList and stop when the generated number is a 1.  How
do I do that?

Thanks for the help,

Sincerely,

Tom De Vries
