To me, math is based on someone at some point holding up their finger and agreeing that such a distance was an inch or that a mutiple of objects were named as number to categorize the clutter.

How about this: 3 guys go to a motel, the manager says 30$ for a room, the 3 guys each pich in 10$ = 30$.
the manager as some remorce about the price he charged, so he sends the bell boy the give back 5$, so that they paid 25$ for the room.
On his way to give back 5$, the bell boy says to him self 3 guys 5$ is hard to divide, so he pockets 2$ and gives
each of the 3 guys 1$ back. so that they each paid 9$.
3x9 = 27$ plus the 2$ pocketed = 29$.... where is the other $
