Chkconfig output

Hi all,
For example, when i type the command "chkconfig --list xfs". I will get the result " xfs 0: off ... 3: on 4: on 5: on 6: off".
But what if i only want to see whether runlevel "3" and "5" is on or off? So what command can i actually use to grep that particular output? Thanks!

A more concise approach notwithstanding, the below will work

To see only 5:

chkconfig --list xfs | sed 's/.*5\: \([ofn]* \).*/\1/'
To see only 3:
chkconfig --list xfs | sed 's/.*3\: \([ofn]* \).*/\1/'
