The 5th century is in between the year 401 and 500.

A decade is equal to 10 years. The year in the third decade in the 5th century is 431.

Six years after the year 431 is the year 437 because it is in the **3rd decade**. 425 is in the 2nd decade.

The year is 437.

Michael, you are correct in the addition, but the first decade of any century is years 01-10.

The second decade of any century are years 11-20.

The third decade of any century are years 21-30, and so on until you get to decade 91-100.
