What numberline? Counting and fractions do not make up any numberline.
The numberline is a construction of partitioning into a base i hope
you realise that, and that is why cannot find 1/3 upon it.
Subtraction is the operation of reducing an operand or group of
operands. In measure theory and statistics we possibly can use
negative operands forming a set with a magnitude that doesn't mean
there is negative numbers, but in arithmetics it is balloneys.

And as i told you there is no 0 (zero) in bijective base so i am not
sure what you try to convey, is this some numberline you dreamed up?
From what?

Yes 1=3/3 but what is 3000 supposed to mean and 10000 . ???
In NyaN ***ternary*** 3/3 is written .3 ???

Honestly you lost me try again.
