Here are some fun facts about twins and triplets. According to a medical mathematical rule called the Hellin’s law:

1. One in 90 births is twins

2. One in 8,100 births is triplets

Identical twins occur when a single sperm fertilizes one single egg, which then splits into two. For identical triplets or quadruplets, the fertilized egg splits into three and four, respectively.
