Answer:

#=color(blue)(25#

Explanation:

#125^(2/3#

#125 = 5 xx 5 xx 5#

#125 = 5 ^3#

#125^(2/3) = 5^(3 (2/3)#

...................................................................................
Consider just the indices:
#3xx2/3 = (cancel(3)^1xx2)/(cancel(3)^1) = 2#
..............................................................................

# = 5^2 #

#=color(blue)(25#
