There is no known number that can be squared and produce a negative number since if the number is positive, the result will be positive, and if it's negative the result will still be positive. Accordingly the square roots of negative numbers are normally expressed as a factor of "i" where i is the square root of -1. In that case the square root of -25 is 5i.
