55 divided by five equals what?

To answer the question, we need to work out how many fives there are in 55. We can use our knowledge of the five times table to help. This model shows 10 groups of five. 10 lots of five or 10 groups of five is another way of saying 10 times five. We know that 10 times five is 50: five, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50. So if 10 times five is 50, if we add one more group of five, we’ll have 11 groups of five. Five more than 50 is 55. 55 divided by five is 11. 10 times five is 50. 11 times five is 55. So 55 divided by five equals 11.
