## Multiples of 3

1 x 3 = 3

2 x 3 = 6

3 x 3 = 9

4 x 3 = 12

5 x 3 = 15

6 x 3 = 18

7 x 3 = 21

8 x 3 = 24

9 x 3 = 27

10 x 3 = 30

11 x 3 = 33

12 x 3 = 36

In multiples of 3, we count triplets, i.e. groups of 3.

For example, 4×3 equals 4 times 3.

## How to learn and memorize multiples of 3

In multiples of 3, we count triplets, i.e. groups of 3.

For example, 4×3 equals 4 times 3

4×3 = 3+3+3+3 = 12

**How do you easily calculate multiples of 3?**

**Method 1: Any number times 3 is equal to 3 times the same number.**

for example,

6×3=6+6+6=18

**Method 2: When you want to calculate a number multiple of 3, raise your fingers according to the number shown in the exercise and count 3 numbers to each finger. The last number we reached in the count is the result.**

For example, to calculate 4×3, you hold up 4 fingers and start counting like this: 1, 2, 3 for the first finger, 4, 5, 6 for the second finger, 7, 8, 9 for the third finger, 10, 11, 12 for the last finger. We reached 12 and this is the answer.

**Interesting to know**

Multiples of 3 are numbers whose sum of digits is divisible by 3. This fact can be used to know whether any number is a multiple of 3 or not. For example, the sum of the digits of the number 102 is 1+0+2=3. Therefore, the number 102 is a multiple of 3.
