You will tell me because if the zero is in the left it will not have any value

In the decimals it is the opposite if the zero is in the right it will not have any value

If the 0 is near the point it will have value if it is far it will not have

ex:010.050

there are two zeros near the point these zeros only that have value

one more thing if you have 1

then start adding 0

10

100

1000

10000

the number is becoming bigger

but in decimals

0.1

0.01

0.001

0.0001

the number is becoming smaller

If you didn't understand please tell me ;)
