The Chinese word 三 means the number three. It is one of the basic numerical words in Chinese and is used in a variety of contexts, such as counting, telling time, and expressing age. For example, to say “three apples,” you would say “三个苹果”. Additionally, the number three has cultural significance in Chinese tradition, as it represents harmony and balance, and is often associated with the three elements of heaven, earth, and humanity.
