    I am guessing you want to figure the flow rate in number of drops/mL required to empty 1 L in 6 hrs

    So the flow rate is 1 Liter per 6 Hours, to start with

    \[\frac{ 1 ~~L }{6~~hrs }\]

    need to use the given info, to convert the units to what you need gtt/min

    \[\frac{ 1 ~~L }{6~~hrs } * \frac{ 1~hrs }{ 60~\min }*\frac{ 1000~ mL }{ 1~ L } * \frac{ 25~gtt }{ 1~mL } = \]

    just arranged it so units cancel correctly, left with gtt/min

    (1000 * 25) / (6*60)
