math, invented?

I have heard the question posed, “Is math invented, or discovered?”

Very simple. I can answer that with another question. Who decided that addition is commutative, and subtraction is not?

To be clear, it’s no question that our symbology and semantics for math has been invented, but that is an entirely different question altogether.
