Multiplication Table of 3

Repeated addition by 3’s means the multiplication table of 3.

(i) When 4 groups having three starfish each.

By repeated addition we can show 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 12

Then, three 4 times or 4 threes

4 × 3 = 12

Therefore, there are 12 starfish.


(ii) When there are 8 boxes which contain three pencils in each box.

By repeated addition we can show 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 24

Then, three 8 times or 8 threes

8 × 3 = 24

Therefore, there are 24 pencils.



We will learn how to use the number line for counting the multiplication table of 3.

3 Times Table on Number Line

(i) Start at 0. Hop 3, two times. Stop at 6.

2 threes are 6         2 × 3 = 6


(ii) Start at 0. Hop 3, six times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 18

6 threes are 18         6 × 3 = 18


(iii) Start at 0. Hop 3, eleven times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 33

11 threes are 33         11 × 3 = 33


How to read and write the table of 3?

Multiplication Table of Three

The above diagram will help us to read and write the 3 times table.

     Read

1 three is 3

2 threes are 6

3 threes are 9

4 threes are 12

5 threes are 15

6 threes are 18

7 threes are 21

8 threes are 24

9 threes are 27

10 threes are 30

11 threes are 33

12 threes are 36

  Write

1 × 3 = 3

2 × 3 = 6

3 × 3 = 9

4 × 3 = 12

5 × 3 = 15

6 × 3 = 18

7 × 3 = 21

8 × 3 = 24

9 × 3 = 27

10 × 3 = 30

11 × 3 = 33

12 × 3 = 36

Now we will learn how to do forward counting and backward counting by 3’s.

Forward counting by 3’s: 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36, 39, 42, 45, 48, 51, 54, 57, 60, 63, 66, 69, 72, 75, ……


Backward counting by 3’s: ……, 75, 72, 69, 66, 63, 60, 57, 54, 51, 48, 45, 42, 39, 36, 33, 30, 27, 24, 21, 18, 15, 12, 9, 6, 3, 0.
