Change Select Selected in Modal

Hi E's,
I Have 3 buttons and a Materialize Modal that contains a HTML Select with Four options to choose from. 0 by default and 1, 2, and 3, and each number between 1 to 3 are associated to each button.
The objective is, when I click in any button, open the Modal and change the select view for the correspondent number.
I try change the selected with jQuery in this way:
$("#numbers[value=3]").attr("selected", "selected");
but not work.
In attach image you can see what appear regardless of which button I click.Modal view

You will need to re-initialise the material_select after doing this
<script>
$('.modal').modal();
$('select').material_select();
</script>

<script>
$(".b1").click(function(){
$('#modal1').modal('open');
$("#numbers").val(1);
$("#numbers").material_select();
});

$(".b2").click(function(){
$('#modal1').modal('open');
$("#numbers").val(2);
$("#numbers").material_select();
});

$(".b3").click(function(){
$('#modal1').modal('open');
$("#numbers").val(3);
$("#numbers").material_select();
});
</script>
