Multiples of 3

Any number that can be denoted in the form 3n where n is an integer is a multiple of 3. So if two values p and q are there, we say that q is a multiple of p if q = np for some integer n.

Some of the multiples of  include

6 18 21 300 60

All numbers which can be divided or is a product of 3 is a multiple of 3. The multiples are also called factors and it depends on their use in the equation too.

What is a Multiples of 3?

Any number that can be denoted in the form 3n where n is an integer is a multiple of 3. So if two values p and q are there, we say that q is a multiple of p if q = np for some integer n.

For example, 9, 21, 12 and 36 are all multiples of 3 for the following reasons

12 = 3 x 3
15 = 3 x 5
9 = 3 x 3
23 = 3 x 8

These values are called as multiples as these values are obtained by adding or subtracting original value many times.

Is 0 a multiple of 3?

Yes, zero is a multiple of every number. So, 0 is a multiple of 3 also. 3 x 0 = 3
