# If the corresponding elements of set A and set B are (1,5), (2, 25), (3,125), (4, 625), what is the corresponding element of set B for the element 5 in set A?

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.

Because this is the pattern of multiple of 5.

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

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 :).
