5 = 3125

 

This is because the pattern is 'multiply the number by 5'.

So, 5x5 = 25.

25x5 = 125.

125x5 = 625.

625x5 = 3125.

 

Hope I helped :).

Answer is 3125

Because this is the pattern of multiple of 5.

5*5*5*5*5=3125 or 625*5=3125

The elements of set A are (1, 2, 3, 4, 5...) and those of set B are (5, 25, 125, 625 ...)

It is seen that the result of 5 raised to the power of any number of set A is the corresponding number of set B.

5^1 = 5, 5^2 = 25, 5^3 = 125, 5^4 = 625.

For the element 5, 5^5 = 3125 is the corresponding element of set B.

The required element of set B is 3125.
