Zero is a rational number. Rational numbers are numbers that can be represented by the division of two integers. Zero is zero divided by anything besides zero, so zero is rational.

As long as the decimal part of the number is equal to zero, then a decimal number can be an integer. For example, 2.0 is an integer.

Any negative decimal comes before zero in decimals.

0.049The first zero is in the ones place otherwise known as the whole numbers place. The second zero (behind the decimal) is in the tenth's place. The four is in the hundredth's place and the nine is in the thousandth's place.

Th only decimal that can be closest to zero is zero itself. For any other decimal number, no matter how close to zero, it is always possible to find infinitely many numbers which are closer to zero.

If you're talking about whole numbers, then negative integers. But since fractions and decimals are numbers, and are not integers, anything with a negative symbol before it comes before zero. Examples: -0.34, -40, -2/3

Rational numbers can be written as a fraction with a non-zero denominator,as a terminating,a decimal,or a repeating decimal.

Lining the numbers up makes it easier to spot 0s between the decimal point and the leading non-zero digit.

My Chemistry teacher defined trailing zero's as the ones that follow another number. We used them in relation to significant figures. If that's how you're using them (as significant figures) then the numbers are sometimes significant. If they come after a decimal point they're significant. Like 300.0 the 2 zero's before the decimal point are unsignificant, and the one after is (It's also a trailing zero).

That is a convention. In some countries it is customary to include the zero before the decimal point, in others it isn't.That is a convention.

There are an infinite number of negative numbers before zero.

All numbers that have a 4 before a decimal point and some non-zero digits after the decimal point lie between 4 and 5. If the "between" is inclusive, then the numbers 4 and 5 (which can be followed by a decimal point and any number of zeros) also lie there.

You may be thinking of rounding (right of the decimal) or zero suppression (left of the decimal).
