Advent calendar 2018

6 December

This puzzle is inspired by a puzzle that Daniel Griller showed me.
Write down the numbers from 12 to 22 (including 12 and 22). Under each number, write down its largest odd factor*.
Today's number is the sum of all these odd factors.
* If a number is odd, then its largest odd factor is the number itself.
