You punch it into the calculator
(it is a constant)

In other words - you don't. As long as 25 is an integer number ee25 is an exact value, replacing it with anything else will be approximate only.

ee25 =e25e
There is no further simplification possible. I hope that helped you anyway.

No, I don't think even this is correct.  For this to be true, 25e and e25 would have to be equivalent, they're not.

25e1 ~ 68.

You are wrong twice First - it is not correct. Second - assuming it is correct, further simplifaction is possible and e25e is simply 25e2

Next on the chopping board: Borek

Second - assuming it is correct, further simplifaction is possible and e25e is simply 25e2
25e2 is only about 185, much smaller than e25e.

You are likely thinking of a log rule

You have missed the point. Reread my posts.

Oops, I understand now, sorry I guess I was a bit hasty

But you have forgotten that further simplification is possible as 25e2=50e
