#### Worksheet Overview

This activity is about multiplying by 5.

Example

There are 9 bunches of bananas here.

Each bunch has 5 bananas.

We want to work out how many bananas there are in total.

What are 9 lots of 5?

Answer

In total, there are 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5  = 45 bananas.

What is 9 times 5?

9 x 5 = 45

5 x 9 = 45

Let's try another example.

There are 6 hands above and each hand has 5 fingers (if you include the thumbs!)

We want to work out how many fingers there are in total.

What are 6 lots of 5?

Answer

In total, there are 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 30 fingers.

What is 6 times 5?

6 x 5 = 30

5 x 6 = 30
