What Are Some Examples of 5th Grade Math Problems?

Fifth grade children learn to add and subtract large numbers by writing them in columns rather than horizontally. These multiplication problems can be written in columns: 944 times 84 equals 79,296, and 508 times 92, equals 46,736. These division problems can use a long-division format: 2812 divided by four equals 703, and 5916 divided by four equals 1479.
