The new tags "number" and "theory" were created at the same time tagging the same question leading me to believe that they are meant to be "number-theory". They do not contribute anything as tags so removing them may be a good idea.

Useless, duplicate, or misspelled tags are created often, and should be removed from questions. Users with 2K rep interested in having a somewhat sane tag system may want to look at the list of new tags regularly and deal with miscreations such as

Just remove such things from questions, replacing them with appropriate tags. Having no questions left, a tag dies within 24 hours.

If you are unsure if the tag is useful or not, begin discussion on Meta, for example in Tag cleanup 2014.

[I dealt with those listed above, except differantiability was already gone by the time I saw it.]

    $\begingroup$ I wonder what could be a sane tag in place of solve-problem ;) $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Sep 25 '14 at 16:00

    $\begingroup$ (differantiability) was a typo I made when retagging this question, I managed to remove it during grace period. I avoided the question with (solve-problem) tag since I did not want to put it into review queue by a trivial edit. I have also removed (number) from two questions yesterday, so I am surprised that it reappeared that quickly. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Sep 25 '14 at 16:41

    $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak Tag and title edits do not put a question into Reopen queue; source. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Sep 25 '14 at 16:57

    $\begingroup$ @DanielFischer In the specific case, nothing; but in general, problem-solving exists. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Sep 25 '14 at 19:01
