Mixture series

Home > Programs > Basics

210 / 265

Consider the following series: 1,1,2,3,4,9,8,27,16,81,32,243,64,729,128,2187…

This series is a mixture of 2 series - all the odd terms in this series form a geometric series and all the even terms form yet another geometric series. Write a program to find the Nth term in the series.

The value N in a positive integer that should be read from STDIN. The Nth term that is calculated by the program should be written to STDOUT. Other than value of n th term,no other character / string or message should be written to STDOUT. For example , if N=16, the 16th term in the series is 2187, so only value 2187 should be printed to STDOUT.

You can assume that N will not exceed 30.
