Could someone please explain to me why this is true:
5^2/3x25^2/3=25 I understand problems like 5^4+5=5^5 is false, but it's simpler. I'm just not getting what makes the top problem true

You need to use parentheses in your problem
5^2/3x25^2/3=25
I have no idea what this means?
Is this your problem?
5^2/3 x 25^2/3 = 25
This does not equal 25.

For the above to be true you will have to write it s
(5^(2/3)) (25^(2/3))
= (5^(2/3))(5^(4/3))
= 5^(6/3)
= 5^2
= 25

thanks REINY. After seeing your post, the problem, as I typed without parentheses, is apparent. I don't know why I didn't see that! Parentheses are nice though.
