6 15/25=6.60=660%

#### Explanation:

To convert a fraction in decimal, one should make denominator a power of $10$. Here as denominator is $25$, we can easily do it by multiplying numerator and denominator by $4$.

Hence $6 \frac{15}{25} = 6 \frac{15 \times 4}{25 \times 4} = 6 \frac{60}{100}$

= $6 \frac{6}{10} = 6 + \frac{6}{10} + \frac{0}{100} = 6.60$

And to convert a fraction in percent, we have to just multiply it by $100$.

Hence 6 15/25=6.60=6.60xx100%=660%
