Question:
Who invented mathematics and for how long has it been around?

Replies:
Math did not need to be invented! It has been around forever. Well, ok,
here is a quote from "Mathematical Thought from ancient to modern times":
"Mathematics as an organized, independent, and reasoned discipline did not
exist before the classical Greeks of the period from 600 to 300 BC entered
upon the scene. There were, however, prior civilizations in which the
beginnings or rudiments of mathematics were created."
