how can you break apart arrays when you multiply by 3?

I am confused by what you mean by "break apart" and "array".
If your array is a matrix, multiplying by 3 means multiplying every number in the array by 3. That will not break it apart. 
Break apart means to break a product to make it easier example : 4 x 24 the 24 will become 20 + 4.
4 x 24 think as (4 x 20) + (4 x 4)
4 x 20= 80 and 4 x 4 = 16
so 80 + 16=96 and that's the answer.
An array is a bundle,collection
