Humans invented mathematics.
Mathematics is a language we use to describe values and trends we observe in the world that we otherwise couldn't explain. Why is it that if I hold up four fingers it's four fingers not five? It is because we have assigned the word "four" to explain that value.
The patterns, values and trends that mathematics describes have existed since the world began (possibly earlier) and always will but the symbols and equations we use to explain these things  the language we call maths  are of humanities creation.
