### abstract

• The branching ratios of the decay of the $$\tau$$ lepton to five charged hadrons have been measured with the OPAL detector at LEP using data collected between 1991 and 1995 at $${\rm e^+e^-}$$ centre-of-mass energies close to the $${\rm Z}^0$$ resonance. The branching ratios are measured to be  where the first error is statistical and the second systematic.
