Dividing by 1000 twice?

If I take any whole number and divide by 1000 twice then is it only mathematically possible to have a maximum of 6 numbers right of the decimal point.

Example

999 / 1000 / 1000 = 0.000999

58679 / 1000 / 1000 = 0.058679


My maths teacher has set all of the students in our class the task of finding an exception to this rule, I think it cannot be done!

Thanks

Hint: If you divide a number by $1000$ (any number, not just a whole number), what happens to the decimal point? – Matthew Pressland Jun 12 '12 at 13:00
More hint: dividing by 1000 twice is the same as dividing by...what number? – Gerry Myerson Jun 12 '12 at 13:01
How about 123546 / 1000 / 1000 = 0.1234559999999… . Is that cheating? – MJD Jun 12 '12 at 13:01
If the teacher is seriously seeking an answer like $10^6/10^6=0.\overline{9}$, and there is any portion of the grade riding on answering such a question, I would like to kindly suggest more productive exercises. Students shouldn't be subject to the sadism of being forced to find a useless trick like this :P – rschwieb Jun 12 '12 at 13:13
@MattPressland Yeah, it can be for the right level of student. I still remember being asked in an introductory algebra course to "invent the Dorroh extension" without having ever seen anything like the Dorroh extension before. That's kind of like telling a student what a commutative domain is and then asking them to figure out how it can be embedded in a field. – rschwieb Jun 12 '12 at 13:42

3. It's a trick question (like $10^6/1000/1000 = 0.999\ldots$, or base-n numbers)
