A simplified proof of a modification of Booth's multiplication algorithm by MacSorley to a form which examines three multiplier bits at a time is presented. In comparison with the original Booth's algorithm, which examines two bits at a time, the modified algorithm requires half the nutmber of iterations at the cost of somewhat increased complexity for each iteration.
