  1. 5 n is bigger as 5 n = 5 x n / n + n + n + n + n

  2. it depends on the value of n
    if the value of n were to be 1, 5n would be 5 x 1 which will give 5
    if the value of n were to be 1, 5 + n would be 5 + 1 which will give 6, thus 5 + n would be greater
    if n › 1, 5 n would be greater
    if the value of n = 2, 5n would be 10, 5 + n would be 7

  3. 5n is larger as 5n = n+n+n+n+n
    while, 5+ n is 5+n which in comparison is smaller

  4. 5n is N +N + N + N + N
    While 5 + n is only 5 + n
    And the bigger number will be 5n
