## Abstract

The following question was pronounced, many years ago in Strasbourg, by Vladimir Turaev in the IRMA lecture room: Let $L⊂S_{3}$ be a link consisting of divide knots $K_{1};K_{2};…;K_{n}$ given by divides $P_{1};P_{2};…;P_{n}$. How to compute the Milnor higher linking numbers from the system of divides?

Also in the room was the question: Let $L⊂S_{3}$ be a link consisting of knots $K_{1};K_{2};…;K_{n}$ given by Turaev shadows $S_{1};S_{2};…;S_{n}$. How to compute the Milnor higher linking numbers from the system of shadows?

The present contribution answers the first question for the triple higher linking numbers.
