### What you need to know about 5 times table

Amongst many multiplication methods, skip counting in 5s is extremely easy and fast. At the start, you can try to skip count in 5s aloud.

It goes thus 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60

Notice that every number ends with either 5 or zero.

This helps to tell you that in the multiply by 5 test;

- an even number multiplied by 5, the product ends with zero
*(i.e: 5 x 6 = 30)*, - while the product of an odd number multiplied by 5, ends with 5
*(i.e: 5 x 3 = 15)*.

### Example - 5 times table test

We have diverse exercises in our 5 times table test. Here, we can use any method in obtaining our product.

Multiply

5 x 4 = ?

__Answer__: [ 16 25 20 ]

Let's skip count in 5s four times; 5, 10, 15, 20.

Good! Our 4^{th} position is 20.

So 5 x 4 = 20.

Another simple trick to apply here is to add a zero behind the number to be multiplied by 5, then cut it in half. 5 x 4 = 40.

When we cut **40** in half, we have **20**. Thus our answer.

*Fantastic, this is really easy.*
