    Okay. n is the variable. Multiply 3 by n to get the answer. The answer is the product of 3 and n.

    Nothing has been added or subtracted so you can eliminate those options. That leaves one remaining option. What is it?

    We don't know what n is. It is called a variable because it varies and can be just about any number.

    3 times 5 = 15 but 3 times n cannot be "simplified" in that way because we do not know the value of n.

    3n + 3 is not correct because the phrase said three times a number n. Nothing was said about adding 3.

    The answer is the product of 3 and n. It is 3n which is the last option.
