multiply position in a list

I want to append a list hundred times like this:

```x = [0, 0, 1]
iters = 0
while iters < 100:

x = x + [0,0,3]
print(x)

iters += 1
```

but I would like it everytime to grow the third element by 3 e.g. [0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 3, 0, 0, 9] etc. but I am not able to figure it out...

Hi Daniel

Does this code work for you. See below

```mylist = [0, 0, 1]
new_list=[]
for i in range(1,101):
new_list=[mylist[0],mylist[1],(i*3)]
mylist.extend(new_list)
print(mylist)

output

[0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 3, 0, 0, 6, 0, 0, 9, 0, 0, 12, 0, 0, 15, 0, 0, 18, 0, 0, 21, 0, 0, 24, 0, 0, 27, 0, 0, 30, 0, 0, 33, 0, 0, 36, 0, 0, 39, 0, 0, 4
