Boogafive is equal to $$5\uparrow\uparrow\uparrow5$$, or 5 pentated to 5.[1]

Googology Wiki user Hyp cos calls this number pentro, and it's equal to s(5,5,3) = s(5,2,4) = s(5,3,1,2) in strong array notation.[2]

## Etymology

The name "boogafive" is formed by adding the booga- prefix to 5.

The name "pentro" is based on the word "penta" and "tri" (Greek for 5 and 3), meaning a base-5 number, generated using hyper-3 operation based on exponentiation.

## Computation

Boogafive can be computed in the following process:

• $$f(1)=5$$
• $$f(2)=5^5=3,125$$
• $$f(3)=5^{5^5}\approx1.911\times10^{2,184}$$
• $$f(4)=5^{5^{5^5}}$$
• etc.
• Boogafive is equal to $$f(f(f(f(5))))$$.
