What is the least possible decimal greater than zero?

There is no such thing.Choose any positive decimal - as small as you want. You can always create one that is even smaller, for instance, dividing it by 10 (adding an additional zero after the decimal point). For example, if you choose 0.000001, you can create a smaller decimal if you divide it by ten: 0.0000001. Since it is ALWAYS smaller to create an even smaller positive decimal, it follows that there is no smallest such decimal.

Why is 0.09 smaller than 0.1?

the farther the decimal place goes to the right, the smaller the number,ie 0.09 is smaller than 0.1 because the decimal place is smaller. 0.09 (Zero and one HUNDREDTHS) vs 0.1 (zero and one TENTH). One hundred is bigger than ten. With decimals it is the opposite. One HUNDREDTH is smaller than one TENTH.
