Unless I'm reading wrong or remembering the wrong rules.

I knew it had to end with 5*5, but that as far as I got. I asked my wife and within 45 seconds she had it. I didn't realize I married a nymph-o who's also good at math!!!

Also, ((((5/5)+5)*5)-5) = 25....I think
5/5 = 1
1+5 = 6
6*5 = 30
30-5 = 25
