No, it's correct.
Math is the set of many things, algebra, geometry, division, so on and so forth
While in certain cases like Algebra you can say one person in particular (it was an Arabic scholar, though I can't remember the name), you can't credit the whole thing to one person.
So if your question is "who invented mathematics", "who" being the subject in an individual form, there is no proper answer than the explanation I gave you.

but sir, mathematics was never invented.
but only discovered.
had we never found the value of Pi to be 3.1415926...
that wouldn't make it false, it always exists.
in short, mathematics is one of the only constant things that exists within our universe.
sure people discovered usage of algebra, geometry, division, but they in no way invented it, and it is quite arrogant of us a a species to say that someone did invent it.
