# The 03 Times Table

Learning the three times table involves multiplying numbers by 3, or tripling them. Knowing how to do that helps with all kinds of maths at KS3 level and beyond. Even if you get all the questions right the first time you play this quiz, keep on coming back to it as you can improve the time it takes you to answer all the questions. Once you've memorised the three times table it will make multiplying numbers, and so your maths lessons, a lot easier!

There are many things that come in threes. There are three primary colours: red, green and blue. A triangle has three sides. Three-dimensional (3D) means that something has length, width and height. Three is quite an important number.

So, even if you think you already know the three times table, take your time and make sure that you read every question carefully before choosing your answer. Overconfidence can lead to careless mistakes!
