Do you think Math was discovered, invented, or both?

Mathematical truths are discovered and the mathematical process by which the discovering can be done is invented.

The key thing being: the mathematical truths would still be there to discover even if we never invented such a process of discovery which we call 'mathematics'.

The concept of "mathematical truths" seems strange to me.  It suggests that there are other things that are NOT "mathematical truths".  Is it the same thing as evidence?
