The Nikon D3300 has a 1.5x crop factor. This is helpful for determining the angle of view a lens will have on a camera.
APS-C sensors are smaller than full frame sensors. They are referred to as "crop sensors" because the smaller area is the same as if it was "cropped" from the center of a full frame.
To get the same images from a APS-C sensor paired with a 50mm lens, a 75mm lens would have to be used on a camera with a full frame sensor.
