125

125 is a perfect cube, 53.

125 is the smallest cube that is also the sum of two squares in two different ways: 125 = 112 + 22 = 102 + 52.

3 – 27 = 5 – 2. The only known matching pattern is 133 – 37 = 13 – 3.

125 is the hypotenuse of a primitive Pythagorean triple: 1252 = 442 + 1172.

5^3 - 2^7 = 125 - 128 = -3
