It takes 5 fifths to make a gallon.

It takes 10 fifths to make 2 gallons.

It takes 15 fifths to make 3 gallons.

It takes 20 fifths to make 4 gallons.

It takes 25 fifths to make 5 gallons.

A fifth in math terms is one out of five equal parts.

The fifth in math terms  can also be written as 20% or 0.2.

But for every fifth in math terms you have 1 gallon.
