|Divisors||1, 5, 25|
It is a square number, being 52 = 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. 252 = 625, the other is 76. It is the smallest square that is also a sum of two (non-zero) squares: 25 = 32 + 42. Hence it often appears in illustrations of the Pythagorean theorem.
25 percent (%) is equal to 1/.
25 has an aliquot sum of 6 and number 6 is the first (or smallest) number to have an aliquot sequence that does not culminate in 0 through a prime. Twenty-five is the aliquot sum of three integers; 95, 119, and 143. Twenty-five is the second composite member of the 6-aliquot tree.
According to the Shapiro inequality, 25 is the least odd integer n such that there exist x1, x2, …, xn such that
where xn + 1 = x1, xn + 2 = x2.
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.
25 and 49 are the only perfect squares in the following list:
- 13, 25, 37, 49, 511, 613, 715, 817, 919, 1021, 1123, 1225, 1327, 1429, etc.
The formula in this list can be described as 10nZ + (2Z + 1) where n depends on the number of digits in Z and in 2Z + 1.
In base 30, 25 is a 1-automorphic number (displayed as the numeral 'P' or 'R' dependent on the chosen digit set), and in base 10 a 2-automorphic number.
