# Multiplication Table of 5

Repeated addition by 5’s means the multiplication table of 5.

(i) When 6 bowls of five fruits each.

By repeated addition we can show 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 30

Then, five 6 times or 6 fives

6 × 5 = 30

Therefore, there are 30 fruits.

(ii) When 9 baskets each having 5 shirts.

By repeated addition we can show 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 45

Then, five 9 times or 9 fives

9 × 5 = 45

Therefore, there are 45 shirts.

We will learn how to use the number line for counting the multiplication table of 5.

(i) Start at 0. Hop 5, four times. Stop at 20.

4 fives are 20         4 × 5 = 20

(ii) Start at 0. Hop 5, seven times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 35

7 fives are 35         7 × 5 = 35

(iii) Start at 0. Hop 5, twelve times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 60

12 fives are 60         12 × 5 = 60

How to read and write the table of 5?

The above chart will help us to read and write the 5 times table.

 Read 1 five is 5 2 fives are 10 3 fives are 15 4 fives are 20 5 fives are 25 6 fives are 30 7 fives are 35 8 fives are 40 9 fives are 45 10 fives are 50 11 fives are 55 12 fives are 60 Write 1 × 5 = 5 2 × 5 = 10 3 × 5 = 15 4 × 5 = 20 5 × 5 = 25 6 × 5 = 30 7 × 5 = 35 8 × 5 = 40 9 × 5 = 45 10 × 5 = 50 11 × 5 = 55 12 × 5 = 60

Now we will learn how to do forward counting and backward counting by 5’s.

Forward counting by 5’s: 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, 100, 105, 110, 115, 120, ……

Backward counting by 5’s: ……, 120, 115, 110, 105, 100, 95, 90, 85, 80, 75, 70, 65, 60, 55, 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 10, 5, 0.
