because as long as the number(4) is right after the decimal point it doesnt matter how many 0's are in front of decimal or after the 4. think of it in dollar amount 0.4 is 0dollars and 40 cents. .40 is still 0 dollars and 40 cents thus 0.4=.40 if it were a different number than 0 than it would be different.... does that make sense?

I get it now the numbers 0.4 and 0.40 are the same. Thank you Dan!
