James randomly choose an ordered pair $(x,y)$ which both $x$ and $y$ are elements in the set $\{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15\}$, $x$ and $y$ are not necessarily distinct, and all of the equations: \[x+y\] \[x^2+y^2\] \[x^4+y^4\] are divisible by $5$. Find the probability that James can do so.

$\textbf{(A)} ~\frac{1}{25} \qquad\textbf{(B)} ~\frac{2}{45} \qquad\textbf{(C)} ~\frac{11}{225} \qquad\textbf{(D)} ~\frac{4}{75} \qquad\textbf{(E)} ~\frac{13}{225}$

Solution
