Use the following English to algebra translation to write out the requisite equation:

What: x
Percent: ÷ 100
Is: =
Greater Than: -

Therefore: x/100 = (25 - 15)/15

If necessary, cross multiply to solve. Ideally, memorize common fraction to decimal conversions. 10/15 can be reduced to 2/3 and 2/3 = 66.67%.
