### The momentum before a collision of three objects is always greater than the momentum after the collision?

Negative negative, and quite false as well.Regardless of how many objects are involved, and as long as the collisions are'elastic' ... meaning that no energy is lost in crushing, squashing, pulverizing, orheating any of the objects ... the grand total of all their momenta (momentums)after the collision is exactly the same as it was before the violence erupted.
