Hi
To find answer, convert 5^4 and 5^5 in multiples of 25...
\(5^4=25*25.......5^5=25*125\)

So multiples of 25=(125-25)+1=101....

Otherwise answer =\(\frac{5^5-5^4}{25}+1=\frac{25(5^3-5^2)}{25}+1=5^2(5-1)+1=25*4+1=101\)
C

Multiples of \(25 = 5^2\)

Numbers between \(5^4\) and\(5^5\) = Numbers between 625 to 3125

There are 2500 numbers...

So, Total number of multiples of 25 between 625 to 3125 inclusive = \(\frac{2500}{25} + 1\) => 100 + 1

Hence, Correct answer must be (C) 101

==> The number of multiples become (last-first/n)+1, then you get \(\frac{5^5-5^4}{25}+1=\frac{(5-1)5^4}{25}+1=4(5^2)+1=101\).

Therefore, the answer is C.
Answer: C

We need to determine the number of multiples of 25 between 5^4 = 625 and 5^5 = 3,125.

We can use the following formula:

(largest multiple of 25 in the set - smallest multiple of 25 in the set)/25 + 1

(3125 - 625)/25 + 1 = 2500/25 + 1 = 100 + 1 = 101.

Answer: C
