 1 x 5 = 5.

# The 05 Times Table

The five times table is one of the easier times tables to learn - and learn it you must for KS3 Maths. One trick that might help you is to multiply the numbers by 10 and then halve them. For example 7 x 5. If you multiply 7 x 10, you get 70. Half of 70 is 35. Therefore 7 x 5 must equal 35 - simple, isn't it?

Five is quite a common number. The Olympic symbol has five rings. Basketball is played with teams of five players. We haves five senses: smell, touch, sight, hearing and taste. There are five elements in Chinese philosophy: water, wood, fire, metal and earth. There are five vowels in the English alphabet: a, e, i, o and u. And the lowest value note is a £5 note.

This may be one of the easiest times tables but don't rush through the questions. A moment of carelessness may lead you to click on the wrong answer by mistake. As with all tests, read the questions properly and choose your answers carefully.
