The multiples of two make up the **3 times table**, sometimes referred to as the multiplication table for the number 3. Any integer multiplied by three yields a product that is a multiple of three. Here is the table of three times up to twelve:

- 3 x 1 = 3
- 3 x 2 = 6
- 3 x 3 = 9
- 3 x 4 = 12
- 3 x 5 = 15
- 3 x 6 = 18
- 3 x 7 = 21
- 3 x 8 = 24
- 3 x 9 = 27
- 3 x 10 = 30
- 3 x 11 = 33
- 3 x 12 = 36

**Start at 0 on the number line.****Skip count by 3s, adding 3 each time.**

0, 3 , 6 , 9 , 12 , 15 , 18 ,21 , 27 , 30 , 33, 36 ,…

Each underlined number represents a **multiple of 3**. So, 3 times 1 is 3, 3 times 2 is 6, 3 times 3 is 9, and so on. You can see the pattern of adding 3 to the previous number, and this pattern continues indefinitely.

**Repeated Addition**

Students must comprehend that the 3 times table is just the repetitive addition of the number 3 in order to memorise it. Since multiplication is simply **repeated addition**, as we all know, this may be explained by the following idea. It is known that the formula for 3 × 5 is

3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 15. Consequently, 5 x 3 = 15.

**Some more example**,

3×3 = 9**3 + 3 + 3 = 9 (3 times 3)**

3×4 = 12**3 + 3 + 3 +3 = 12 (3 times 4)**

3×6 = 18**3 + 3 + 3 +3 + 3 +3 = 18 (3 times 6)4**
