latex issue

Hi,

I'm trying to write a sum of individual fractions using latex but in the pdf file
I get something unexpected.

Here's the latex code :

\begin{equation*}

\frac{8}{10^1}+\frac{7}{10^2}+\frac{3}{10^3}+\frac{4}{10^4}+\frac{6}{10^5}

\end{equation*}

/* Didn't realise that what the above would be is the actual output of the code I wrote. The above is how I wanted it to come out but it's not what I got. Anyway, the code I wrote is in the text file. */

I've attached the tex file in case the context is important and the pdf file so it can be seen how it's come out. Hopefully it's obvious what I wanted it to be.
A sum of fractions.

Would be great if someone could help.
