Sort by:

$$501 \times502 \times503 = (500+1)(500+2)(500+3) =500(500+2)(500+3) + (500(500+3)) +2(500) + 6$$ .....when dividing by $$25$$ the only term left out is $$6$$ the remaining are evenly divisible by $$25$$ ..therefore the remainder is $$\boxed{6}$$.

(500+1)X(500+2)X(500+3)=Multiple of 100+6 i.e. last 2 digits are 06. Therefore remainder when divided by 25 is 6.
