How many times can you subtract the number 5 from 25?

Report as

Once. You subtract 5 from 25 getting the result of 20.
You could subtract 5 from 20 next but not from 25.
You can remove 5 pennies from a pot of 25 pennies a total of five times until there are no pennies left in the pot,
You can subtract 5 from a prior number an infinite number of times. So that is also a trick answer.

Theoretically speaking you can subtract 5 from 25 an infinite amount of times. But i was giving you the answer to reach 0 which is standard math.

Infinitely many time. For example, if you subtracted it one hundred times, you would get -475.
