    Does this answer your question? Is it correct to say "times" in this context?

    "Times" isn't a verb.

  • Times is child speak for 'multiply'. Commented Apr 8, 2020 at 12:52
  • So when you are grown up enough to use the past tense, you are also old enough to say “multiplied”.

Instead, you should use the verb"multiply" like this: "I multiplied it by 5 and it equaled 10."
