Abstract: Recently, L. Block has shown that for any mapping of an interval, whether has a periodic point whose period contains an odd factor greater than depends entirely on the periodic orbits of whose periods are powers of . In this paper the author shows that Block's result is a special case of a more general phenomenon.
