Why is 3 a Perfect Number

In numerology, the number 3 is considered a perfect number.

Maybe you’ve heard about the Holy Trinity (3). The symbolic meanings associated with the triangle (3 sides), or that the tripod is the most stable physical form. Even Nikolas Tesla, one of the most influential and creative scientists of all time, lived with an obsession of making everything he did in life in multiples of 3.

The number 3 holds a magical aura around it. You can read a lot of it all over the Internet. However, this article isn’t about information that’s already out there, and it’s about bringing new topics regarding the number 3 and its special status.

Let us see something interesting about the perfection of the number 3 concerning math and numerology, so check this out.

For the ones not yet familiar with numerology science, here’s a brief explanation to understand the essential inner works of it. In numerology, the element number of, let’s say, “9993” can get found by adding all the individual numbers until we get only one.
For example, 9+9+9+3=30, 30 in numerology is 3+0, which is 3, so  9+9+9+3 in numerology is 3.

The special effect I’ve found in the number 3 is the following:

In numerology, whatever number we multiply by 3 (being that number a multiple of 3 or not), the result (the sum of all numbers) is a number that is multiple of 3.

And this only happens with 3 and multiples of 3. If this was a normal process for all numbers (multiples of 3 or not), we would always get a specific number in a numerology result, similar to what happens with 3. But that’s not the case, only with 3 can we consistently get a multiple of 3 in numerology.



x being any number (Z).

3*x= the result in numerology is always 3 or a multiple of 3


Otherwise, any number multiplied by, not 3, we get a lot of different results and not a single number or its multiples
So for instance, if I multiply any number by 7, the result in numerology is not consistently 7 or a multiple of 7.


Any number multiplied by three results in 3 or multiple of 3, in numerology.

5×3=15 (1+5=6) (3 or multiple of 3)
7×3=21 (2+1=3) (3 or multiple of 3)
22×3=66 (6+6=12 (1+2=3)) (3 or multiple of 3)

Some more examples:

3×6=18 (1+8=9) Multiple of 3
3×18=54 (5+4=9) Multiple of 3

3×131=393 (3+9+3=15) (1+5=6) Multiple of 3

3×35655656565= 106966969695 (1+0+6+9+6+6+9+6+9+6+9+5=72) (7+2=9) Multiple of 3

All other numbers give us different and unrelated results. Here are some examples:

2×8=16 (1+6=7)
2×13=26 (2+6=8)
2×133=266 (2+6+6=14) (1+4=5)

4×9=36 (6+3=9)
4×33=132 (1+3+2=6)
4×343=1372 (1+3+7+2=13) (1+3=4)

7×8=56 (5+6=11) (1+1=2)
7×133=931 (9+3+1=13 (1+3=4)
7×3333=23331= (2+3+3+3+1=12 (1+2=3)

Try it for yourself and let me know what you think.

Is three a perfect number? And if so, what makes it perfect? I’m not sure why, but evidence like this seem to suggest it is surely an interesting or particular number.

There is something unique about the number 3 that makes it such a perfect number. I hope you found this information useful and exciting and will help us all make more sense of the power the number 3 may have.

Be free to share your thoughts on this issue, either explaining it further or adding information you may find relevant.
