Knitting 101

Hello, my name is Stacy. I’m kind of new to knitting. I am knitting an Afghan, ocean wave pattern. I’m having trouble deciphering a couple of parts. First row is k5, *k4 (to, k1) 5X, k4. Repeat from * to last 5 stitches, k last 5 stitches. Then row 3 I’m to p2tg 3X then p7 then p2 the 3x. My question is what does the 5 X mean and the 3X then the 3x mean?
Thank you.

Does the ‘x’ mean the amount of times you do the stitch? As in p2tg 3 times? I would understand it to mean that I think.
