$B N = {5}^{2} = 25$; where $B N = \text{Boxes Needed}$.

#### Explanation:

Hampton's total cards $= {5}^{6}$

He has boxes holding ${5}^{4}$ cards

You need to divide the total number of boxes by the number of cards held per box to determine the number of boxes required.

$B N = \frac{{5}^{6}}{{5}^{4}} \text{ }$; where $B N = \text{Boxes Needed}$.
$B N = {5}^{2} = 25$
