# Naked Triple

A **Naked Triple** is a Naked Subset of size 3.

It is formed by 3 cells that have candidates for only 3 digits and are collocated in the same house.

## Example

In this example, observe that **r1c3**, **r2c3** and **r5c3** contain ONLY candidates that are a subset of the digits 6, 7 and 8, and these three cells are all collocated in column 3. As such, these three digits must go to these three cells, so 6, 7 and 8 can be eliminated from all other cells in column 3. In this example, column 3 is the house.
