a simplified meaning will be something like when many people talk about something, that thing becomes believable.

Numerous mouths gravel gold three person of Cheng Hu
三人成虎 : san ren cheng hu (three men create a tiger), refers to a story in which a wise minister asks his king whether he believes there is a tiger in the city. The king replies no, but concedes that if he heard the same story from three men he would believe it.
Therefore the phrase "three men create a tiger" is used to describe a story that gains credibility as it is retold.
