Solution 1

You are better off breaking up the values in your database into separate columns so you can compute easily in Sql Server, or you can compute in c# code.

Solution 2

As Mehdi Gholam wrote, bad design of table, but still you can find solution (hard coded).

See example:
SET @val = '25/25'
SET @search = '/'
SELECT MyFirstVal, MySecondVal, CONVERT(FLOAT, MyFirstVal/MySecondVal) AS Result
    SELECT  CONVERT(INT, LEFT(@val, CHARINDEX(@search, @val)-1)) AS MyFirstVal,
            CONVERT(INT, RIGHT(@val, LEN(@val)- CHARINDEX(@search, @val))) AS MySecondVal
