Hi Gord,

"In the five-band resistor system, the first three bands are the first
three digits, and the fourth and fifth bands are the
multiplier and tolerance, respectively. Since this allows you to be
more precise (three significant digits), the five band system is
generally on precision resistors."

Quoted from :

hope this help
