    If I understood you correctly the user will enter a number inside of the field and you want to divide that number by 5 and show the same number of fields the result is equal to. Is that correct?

    First, you will have to perform a calculation inside of the form and I would suggest you to round the result.

    Most likely you will also have to set the max value of the number field to prevent users to enter a number that is greater than a possible number of fields. 

    You can show the fields with the conditional logic.
