"A thesis statement is the opening and most crucial part of an [essay] or research paper. The point of a thesis statement is to let the readers know what the overall purpose of the paper or essay is and what your main arguments are. When you have three separate point[s] that back up your argument, you can include each of them in your thesis statement. This is known as a three-point thesis statement, and it's an effective way to summarize an argument...Determine the argument you will make in your essay or paper...Come up with three points that support your main argument. With a three-point thesis, you will need three supporting points. However, make sure you can back up those points with evidence...Remember, all of these points need to be backed up by factual evidence in your essay or paper...Start out your thesis statement by stating your main argument...Add the three points to your three[-]point thesis statement. A final three[-]point thesis might look like, 'TomTom offers GPS navigators that are better for consumers than Garmin GPS navigators because they tend to be less expensive, are more user[-]friendly, and offer more features than similar Garmin GPS navigators.'"
