# Number of permutations of $\{1, 2, \dots, n\}$ with $1$ in an even cycle?

How many permutations of $$\{1, 2, \dots, n\}$$ are there, such that $$1$$ is in a cycle of even length? I tried to solve it by using canonical cycle decomposition (i.e. we rotate every cycle so that it begins with the smallest number and we write out cycles sorted by the first element) but failed at finding a correspondence.

The number of such permutations should be $$\sum_{2\leq k\leq n \\\text{k is even}}\binom{n-1}{k-1}(k-1)!(n-k)!= \sum_{2\leq k\leq n \\\text{k is even}}(n-1)!=\lfloor n/2\rfloor (n-1)!$$ where $$\binom{n-1}{k-1}(k-1)!$$ is the number of cycles of length $$k$$ containing $$1$$, and $$(n-k)!$$ is the number of ways to permute the remaining elements.
