Explanation:
Quizás se trate de la abreviatura en inglés correspundiente a "such that"

3 (the such that sign) means “under the condition that” and first appeared in the 1906
edition of Formulaire de mathematiqu´es by the logician Giuseppe Peano (1858–1932).
However, it is much more common (and less ambiguous) to just abbreviate “such that”
as “s.t.”.
There are two good reasons to avoid using “3” in place of “such that”. First of all, the
abbreviation “s.t.” is significantly more suggestive of its meaning than is “3”. Perhaps
more importantly, though, is that it has become increasingly common for the symbol
“3” to mean “contains as an element”, which is a logical extension of the usage of the
unquestionably standard symbol “2” to mean “is contained as an element in”.
