**Tips for Multiplying by 3**

- One way to multiply by three is to triple the other number or to add that number to itself three times. For example, when multiplying 6 by 3, imagine having three 6s or 6 + 6 + 6 = 18. Here's another example: when multiplying 10 by 3, imagine having three 10s or 10 + 10 + 10 = 30.

- It may also help to skip count by threes when multiplying by three. Count by 3s the number of times that is equal to the number you are multiplying by three. For example, when multiplying 4 by 3, count by 3s four times...3 - 6 - 9 - 12 to get an answer of 12 or when multiplying 7 by 3, count by 3s seven times...3 - 6 - 9 - 12 - 15 - 18 - 21 to get an answer of 21.
