That depends on what you mean by "equivalent". The point system for balance is really just an expression in inches. So 6 points head light is 3/4" head light. This means that the balance point is 3/4" below the middle of the frame. On a 27" frame, that would be at 12.75", since the middle is 13.5". So the question is whether you're trying to find the same mathematical point on the 27.5" frame (which is fairly easy math), or whether you're trying to make the two frames feel exactly the same, which is much more fuzzy and subjective.
