Triple Time

In music, it is a count of an odd number of beats in the bar (3) as opposed to duple time (2) or quadruple time (4) which have an even number.

When the beats divide into twos, it is said to be simple time and when it divides into threes it is said to be compound time. For that reason, a jig in 6/8 time is compound duple time (2 groups of three)
