Five Times Table
In this video, we will learn how to multiply by five and how to use the five times table to solve real-world problems. Let’s practice the five times table.
One times five is five. Two times five is 10. Three times five is 15. Four times five is 20. Five times five is 25. Six times five is 30. Seven times five is 35. Eight times five is 40. Nine times five is 45. And 10 times five is 50. The numbers in the five times table all end in a five or a zero five: 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50. Did you spot the pattern? Let’s use our knowledge of the five times table to help us try some practice questions.
A boy drinks five glasses of water every day. How many glasses does he drink in two days?
We know the boy drinks five glasses of water every day. So in one day, he drinks five glasses of water. How many glasses does he drink in two days? Our model shows two groups of five or two times five. Two times five is 10. The boy drinks 10 glasses of water in two days.
A zoo ticket costs five pounds. How much do seven tickets cost?
We know one zoo ticket costs five pounds. We have to work out how much seven tickets would cost. We have to work out what seven lots of five pounds is. Seven times five is 35. Seven tickets would cost 35 pounds.
In this video, we’ve learnt how to use the five times table to help us solve real-world problems.
