Just the once 25 => 2 when you subtract the number 5.

I was thinking – as many times as you want. You should always get 20 as an answer.

an infinite number of times – five times down to zero, then -5, -10, etc.

Beth is today’s winner!!

Only one time. After that, you would be subtracting from 20.

I like your way of thinking Brent. Your answer works for me too.

Once.

I like “infinite” for an answer.

25-5=20

25-5=20

25-5=20

25-5=20

I could go on forever
