it depends on the software you’re writing or whatever, but coding often has more to do with logic than it does with maths (beyond basic things like calculating Big O complexity). in uni i had to take precal, cal 1, cal 2, probability, linear algebra, theoretical mathematics, and digital logic as part of my computing degree. you take those classes because it forces you into thinking in algorithms and patterns, basically. or at least it should if you try to apply what you learn.

programming is not hard. becoming GOOD at programming, meaning mastering algorithms, writing efficient code, utilizing best practices (shifting security left, learning Git and the pipeline, etc etc), that’s the hard part. anyway, i don’t know what point i’m trying to make aside from your… algebra skills being irrelevant to your ability to program, behind you being able to understand basic mathematical operations like modulo.
