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.
