@VISHNUVIVEK: I am working with Oracle. I though B.Stat/M.Stat in ISI, but any case IIT Madras is also a tough nut to crack :-)

The reason you get $10_{10}$ as one of the solution of the equations when you substitute the root $5_{10}$ in the equation is because, $5_{10}$ is the solution of the equation $5_{10}x^{2_{10}}+50_{10}x+125_{10}=0$. In similar ways, you get $25_{10}$ as one of the solution when you substitute the root $8_{10}$ as it is the solution of the equation $5_{25}x^{2_{25}}+50_{25}x+125_{25}=0_{25}$. Note, the subscript denotes the base of the number.
