 # Multiples of 3

Any number that can be denoted in the form 3n where n is an integer is the multiples 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 3 include,

6, 8, 21, 300, 60, etc.

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

## What are the 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, 12, 21 and 36 are all multiples of 3 for the following reasons

 9 = 3 x 3 12 = 3 x 4 21 = 3 x 7 36 = 3 x 12

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 = 0
