# 5 Times Tables Worksheets

• ###### 5 Times Tables #15

Let’s imagine a box of crayons. Each box has 5 crayons. If you have 1 box, you have 5 crayons. If you have 2 boxes, you have 10 crayons. If you have 3 boxes, you have 15 crayons, and so on. The pattern you just saw is a part of the 5 times table.

A 5 times table worksheet is like a fun activity book. It has lots of math problems, all about multiplying by 5. By using this worksheet, kids can practice and get better at understanding how the number 5 works in multiplication. Think of it like practicing playing a game or riding a bike: the more you do it, the better you get!

### Types of Problems Found on These Worksheets

Straightforward Multiplication

Example: 5 × 3 = ?

How to Solve: 5 crayons in 1 box. If you have 3 boxes, how many crayons do you have? Answer: 15 crayons. So, 5 × 3 = 15.

Fill in the Blanks

Example: 5 × ___ = 25

How to Solve: Think about how many boxes of 5 crayons will give you 25 crayons? That’s right, 5 boxes! So, the blank should be filled with the number 5.

Multiple Choice Questions

Example: What is 5 × 6?
a) 28
b) 30
c) 32

How to Solve: Count by fives. 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30. Since we counted six times and reached 30, the answer is b) 30.

Matching Problems

On one side, you’ll have multiplication problems, and on the other side, you’ll have answers. Draw a line to match the correct answer.

Example:

5 × 2 ……. 15
5 × 3 ……. 10

How to Solve: 5 times 2 is 10. So, match “5 × 2” with “10”. 5 times 3 is 15. So, match “5 × 3” with “15”.

Word Problems

Example: Lucy has 5 apples. She puts them in bags, with 5 apples in each bag. How many bags does she have?

How to Solve: If Lucy puts all 5 apples in one bag, she will have just 1 bag. So, the answer is 1 bag.

Reverse Multiplication (Division)

Example: 25 ÷ 5 = ?

How to Solve: If you have 25 crayons and you put them into boxes of 5, how many boxes will you have? That’s right, 5 boxes! So, 25 ÷ 5 = 5.

Draw and Multiply

Example: Draw 4 groups of 5 stars each. How many stars in total?

How to Solve: After drawing, you’ll count the stars and find that there are 20 stars. So, 5 times 4 is 20.

### How Do These Worksheets Help Students?

These worksheets provide students with ample opportunities to practice. Over time, this repeated practice helps students master the 5 times table, making it second nature for them. As students become more comfortable with the 5 times table, their confidence in their math abilities grows. This confidence can spill over into other areas of learning and can encourage a more positive attitude towards education in general.

The number 5 has unique patterns (like ending in 5 or 0). Recognizing these patterns can make math feel like a game and can help students in other areas of math too. By working through different types of questions on the worksheet, students improve their problem-solving skills, learning to approach challenges logically and methodically.

By practicing with these worksheets, you’ll get better and faster at multiplying by 5. Remember, it’s like riding a bike; at first, it might seem hard, but with practice, it becomes easy and enjoyable! So, grab a 5 times table worksheet and start the math adventure!

### How to Master Your 5 Times Tables

Memorizing the 5 times tables is often considered one of the easier multiplication sets to learn, primarily because of the predictable patterns associated with multiplying by 5. Here are some step-by-step tips and tricks to help:

Understanding the Concept

Before memorizing, it’s crucial to understand what multiplication is—a way of adding the same number multiple times. For instance, 5 times 3 (5 x 3) is just adding 5 three times: 5 + 5 + 5 = 15.

Notice the Pattern

One of the great things about the 5 times tables is the pattern they follow. When you multiply a whole number by 5, the result will always end in either 0 or 5.

Example:

1 x 5 = 5
2 x 5 = 10
3 x 5 = 15
… and so on.

Count by Fives

One of the easiest ways to get comfortable with the 5 times table is to count by fives out loud. As you count, use your fingers to help. This engages multiple senses and can help reinforce the numbers in your memory.
Say: “5, 10, 15, 20, 25…” and continue as far as you’d like to go!

This trick is specific to the 5 times tables: The fingers on your hands can be used to multiply numbers by 5 up to 10.

For 3 x 5, hold up 3 fingers. Starting from the left, count: “5, 10, 15”. So, 3 x 5 = 15.

Visual Aids and Flashcards

Create flashcards, with the problem (e.g., 4 x 5) on one side and the answer (20) on the other. Review these regularly.

Charts and posters with the 5 times tables can also be a visual reminder. Place them where you’ll see them regularly, like on the back of your bedroom door or near your study desk.
