In
Vietnam, there is a superstition that considers it bad luck to
take a photo with three people in it; it is professed that the
person in the middle will die soon.
Three
is often the largest number written with as many lines as the
number represents. The Romans tired of writing 4 as IIII, instead
using IV, but to this day 3 is written as three lines in Roman
and Chinese numerals. This was the way the Brahmin Indians wrote
it, and the Gupta made the three lines more curved. The Nagari
started rotating the lines clockwise and ending each line with a
slight downward stroke on the right. Eventually they made these
strokes connect with the lines below, and evolved it to a
character that looks very much like a modern 3 with an extra
stroke at the bottom. It was the Western Ghubar Arabs who finally
eliminated the extra stroke and created our modern 3.

Three
is the first unique prime due to the properties of its
reciprocal.
Three
noncollinear points determine a plane and a circle.
A
natural number is divisible by three if the sum of its digits in
base 10 is divisible by 3. For example, the number 21 is
divisible by three (3 times 7) and the sum of its digits is 2 +
1 = 3. Because of this, the reverse of any number that is
divisible by three (or indeed, any permutation of its digits) is
also divisible by three. For instance, 1368 and its reverse 8631
are both divisible by three (and so are 1386, 3168, 3186, 3618,
etc..).
A
triangle is the only figure which, if all endpoints have hinges,
will never change its shape unless the sides themselves are
bent.
