If there is a number ending with 5 then it's square can be found easily by the following method. For example lets take the number 135. Then to find its square first replace the ending 5 by 25. Then, multiply the remaining number by its successor.(Here, multiply 13 by its successor, i.e., 14) 135^2=(13 * 14)_25 =182 _ 25=18225
