I just noticed that is a synonym of (see here).

IMO this is wrong because arithmetic is just a branch of mathematics, and in programming usually is used in contexts with a rather narrow scope. In fact, when a user tags a question with probably he means to convey rather specific information, which the doesn't provide.

Should the tag be considered for removal from the synonyms of then?
