Counting in 5s follows on closely from counting up and down in steps of 2. It is usually practiced regularly, in order for the skill to be fluent, and children are also taught to recognize that multiples of five end in 5 or 0. Once the five times table is familiar, children will learn how to use the multiplication facts to solve division questions. For example, if they know that 2 times 5 = 10, then they may also recognize that 10 divided by 5 = 2 or 10 divided by 2 = 5.

Use this quiz to help you practice multiplying and dividing by 5.

1.

I pack crayons into boxes, putting 5 in each box. How many boxes will I need for 40 crayons?

48, because 40 ÷ 5 = 48

20, because 4 x 5 = 20

45, because 40 + 5 = 45

8, because 40 ÷ 5 = 8

We could work this out from knowing that 5 x 8 = 40 or 8 x 5 = 40

2.

How many 5s are there in 95?

59

9

19

15

Counting up in 5s until you reach 95 is helpful here

3.

What is 55 ÷ 5?

5

15

10

11

There are 11 groups of 5 in 55

4.

Which number is in the 5 times table?

785

513

556

789

Looking only at the last digit is important when spotting multiples of 5

5.

What is 10 x 5?

50

2

15

5

You would get the same answer from 5 x 10

6.

I know that 12 x 5 = 60. What else do I know?

12 ÷ 60 = 5

60 + 5 = 12

60 ÷ 12 = 5

5 x 60 = 12

If 12 groups of 5 makes 60, then 60 divided into groups of 12 will mean 5 in each group

7.

Which is the odd fact out?

5 x 7 = 35

35 ÷ 7 = 5

35 ÷ 5 = 7

7 ÷ 5 = 35

7 ÷ 5 does not give a whole number as an answer

8.
