**25** (**twenty-five**) is the natural number following 24 and preceding 26.

## Contents

## In mathematics[edit]

It is a square number, being 5^{2} = 5 × 5. It is one of two two-digit numbers whose square and higher powers of the number also ends in the same last two digits, e.g. 25^{2} = 625, the other is 76. It is the smallest square that is also a sum of two (non-zero) squares: 25 = 3^{2} + 4^{2}. Hence it often appears in illustrations of the Pythagorean theorem.

25 is the sum of the single-digit odd natural numbers 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9, the first five odd natural numbers.

25 is a centered octagonal number,^{[1]} a centered square number,^{[2]} and an automorphic number.^{[3]}

25 percent (%) is equal to 1/4.

It is the smallest base 10 Friedman number as it can be expressed by its own digits: 5^{2}.^{[4]}

It is also a Cullen number.^{[5]} 25 is the smallest pseudoprime satisfying the congruence 7^{n} = 7 mod *n*.

25 is the smallest aspiring number — a composite non-sociable number whose aliquot sequence does not terminate.^{[6]}

According to the Shapiro inequality, 25 is the least odd integer *n* such that there exist *x*_{1}, *x*_{2}, …, *x*_{n} such that

where *x*_{n + 1} = *x*_{1}, *x*_{n + 2} = *x*_{2}.

Within base 10 one can readily test for divisibility by 25 by seeing if the last two digits of the number match 00, 25, 50 or 75.
