660 centimeters is equal to how many meters?

1 meter = 100 centimeters

If it was 600 centimeters instead of 660, you could easily get the answer.

100 + 100 + 100 + 100 + 100 + 100 = 600

so you will need six of the 100 centimeters and six 100 centimeters is 6 meters.

Now what's left?

60 centimeters.

this is a fraction of 100 centimeters or 60/100 = 0.6 and it is less than 1 meter.

The answer is then 6 + 0.6 = 6.6 meters.
