In mathematics

25 is a square
It is a square number, being 5
2
= 5 5. 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 a centered octagonal number, a centered square number, and an automorphic number.
25 percent(%) is equal to 1/4.
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.
It is the smallest base 10 Friedman number as it can be expressed by its own numbers: 5
2
.
It is also a Cullen number. 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

number match 25, 50, 75 or 00.
25 and 49 are the only perfect squares in the following list:

The formula in this list can be described as where n clearly 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.
