So, I'm relatively new at playing guitar, and I haven't bought a full set of new strings yet, but I'm looking to do so relatively soon. In the link at the bottom, it says that there are "3 Sets" of strings. I assume that that means there are eighteen strings total, three low E strings, three A strings, three D strings, and so on? Thank you for the help. Please keep the mocking to a minimum.

You are correct in your assumption good sir. May your journey in playing and learning the guitar be as rewarding for you as it has been me!

a string is generally described by it's gauge/thickness (also by whether it is 'wound' or not, but we'll ignore that for now).

the set you linked will have three each of: "Gauges 10-13-17-26-36-46", which describes what is commonly called: "a set of 10 gauge strings"

so yes, three sets of strings are provided for in that pack
punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.
