1) On five occasions, five policemen came to our restaurant.
2) Five times, five policemen came to our restaurant.

a) we are sure that five policemen came together every time
b) it is possible that one came on each occasion. Five policemen in all and five occasions in all.
c) We know that five policemen came five times each, but they might on some occasions have come together or two of them might have come together on some occasions et.
