#### Find the Top 5 Employees with the Highest Salaries

To find the top 5 employees with the highest salaries, you can write a SQL query that orders the employees by salary in descending order and then limits the result set to the first 5 employees.

#### Problem

```Given a table of employee data, write a SQL query to find the top 5 employees with the highest salaries.
Example input:
| employee_id | name  | salary |
| ------------|-------|--------|
| 1           | John  | 100000 |
| 2           | Jane  | 120000 |
| 3           | Smith | 90000  |
Expected output:
| employee_id | name  | salary |
| ------------|-------|--------|
| 2           | Jane  | 120000 |
| 1           | John  | 100000 |```
