$1060$

#### Explanation:

If we use long division, the answer is fairly simple:

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{12} \textcolor{w h i t e}{|} \textcolor{w h i t e}{-} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{1} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{6} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{12} \textcolor{w h i t e}{|} \textcolor{b l a c k}{- - - -}$
$12 | \textcolor{w h i t e}{-} \textcolor{b l a c k}{1} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{2} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{7} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{2} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{12} \textcolor{w h i t e}{|} \textcolor{b l a c k}{-} \textcolor{b l a c k}{1} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{2} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{w h i t e}{1} \textcolor{w h i t e}{0}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{12} \textcolor{w h i t e}{- -} \textcolor{b l a c k}{- - - -}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{12} \textcolor{w h i t e}{|} \textcolor{w h i t e}{-} \textcolor{w h i t e}{1} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{7} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{2}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{12} \textcolor{w h i t e}{|} \textcolor{w h i t e}{1} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{w h i t e}{4} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{-} \textcolor{b l a c k}{7} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{2}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{12} \textcolor{w h i t e}{- - . -} \textcolor{b l a c k}{- -}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{12} \textcolor{w h i t e}{|} \textcolor{w h i t e}{-} \textcolor{w h i t e}{1} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{w h i t e}{4} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{12} \textcolor{w h i t e}{|} \textcolor{w h i t e}{1} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{w h i t e}{4} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{-} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{12} \textcolor{w h i t e}{- - . -} \textcolor{b l a c k}{- - -}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{12} \textcolor{w h i t e}{|} \textcolor{w h i t e}{1} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{w h i t e}{4} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{w h i t e}{-} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \textcolor{b l a c k}{0}$
