Oh. That was my interpretation of the question, but the 5 was kind of off putting

dty,
Go Here, it's Sheldon Brown's glossary, and look up gear inches. Gears are not described by a single number. The size of the front sprocket, the rear cog, and the crank length all effect the "size" of the gear, and will be different on almost all bikes.
