Let f be a continuous map of a closed interval into itself, and let P(f) denote the set of positive integers k such that f has a periodic point of period k. Consider the following ordering of positive integers: 3,5,7,...,2.3,2.5,2.7,...,4.3,4.5,4.7,...,8,4,2,1. Sarkovskii's theorem states that if n ∊ P(f) and m is to the right of n in the above ordering then m ∊ P(f). We may ask the following question: if n ∊ P(f) and m is to the right of n in the above ordering what can be said about the number of periodic orbits of f of period m ?. We give the answer to this question if n is either odd or a power of 2.
