Even nos->a
Odd nos->b
Even nos/2=a/2
Odd nos*3=3b
Add 1 to the product
Product=a/2*3b
=3ab/2
+1=3ab/2+1
=(3ab+2)/2
All even numbers for divided by 2
Multiply odd numbers by 3
Add one to the product

Let's check them, let even numbers be x and odd numbers y
So that [(y/2)*(3x)] + 1
= 3xy/2 + 1 or
= 3xy-2/2
