Figures in court (5)
I believe the answer is:
'figures in court?' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both quantities as well as being plural nouns.
Perhaps they are linked in a way I don't understand?
This is all the clue.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for fives that I've seen before include "bunch capable of causing injury?" , "Squash relative" , "horse disease as before" , "Small numbers" , "Indoor court game" .)
