I know this is the format for displaying outputs on to VF pages

<apex:pageBlock title="CustomObject">
    <apex:pageBlockSection>
        <apex:outputField value="{! CustomObject.var1 }"/>
        <apex:outputField value="{! CustomObject.var2 }"/>
        <apex:outputField value="{! CustomObject.var3 }"/>
        <apex:outputField value="{! CustomObject.var4 }"/>
    </apex:pageBlockSection>
</apex:pageBlock>

I was wondering if we can display independent variable values . for example-

<apex:outputField value="{!var5 }"/>

where var5 is an int value calculated in the custom controller and is not an attribute of the custom object.

<apex:outputField value="{!var5 }"/>

change this into

<apex:outputText value="{!var5 }"/>

It will work for you. apex:outputfield works with Object field while displaying controller variable you can use apex:outputText

If you want to display any integer values or string values.

Use apex:outputText

<apex:outputText value="{!var5}"/>

<apex:outfield> bind with only sobject's field

Display List<String> lstString = new List<String>(); in VF page.

<apex:repat value="{!lstString }" var="str"/>
<apex:outputText value="{!str}"/>
</apex:repeat>
