Maybe the mistake is in search for 0.000, it can't be found, because a 0.000 is always saved as 0, nonsignificant zeroes to the right/left of decimal point are never saved.

Computers store numbers in a fixed-length format - however-many bytes. So there are always the same number of binary digits stored - which equates to a different but similarly (approximately) fixed number of decimal digits stored (unless you choose multiple precision, of course). So surely what you may think of as nonsignificant zeroes are not "never" but *always* stored?
