Work Step by Step

To convert a decimal to a fraction, place the decimal value in the numerator. Set the denominator to a multiple of ten, corresponding to the rightmost place value, in the case ten-thousandths. Simplify by dividing the numerator and denominator by the greatest common factor. $\frac{2006}{10000}=\frac{2006\div2}{10000\div2}=\frac{1003}{5000}$
