Let's Try a Little Logic and Math!

So, I would have to guess that everyone is literate at logic and math puzzles.  Afterall, you made it through at least high school, didn't you?  So I found this interesting paperback book and had to literally destroy it by cutting the binding off, unglueing it and cutting the pages so they would all fit through my scanner.  But it became very apparent that these were no ordinary puzzles.  They start off at level 1 and go through level 10, getting harder and harder as you progress throught them.  I deleted the front material because it was all hype about their book so the first page is actually page 6 which also meant that the table of contents became worthless.  Then I noticed that the puzzle answers were simply in order (1 through 225) which made it a little more difficult to provide the answers to the puzzles.

Obviously, the name is "The Great Book of IQ Puzzles" but don't let that fool you.  Over the next few weeks, the puzzles will be included and trust me, they get harder and harder to accomplish.  You'll have to forgive the "scan" line running down each page (top to bottom).  Apparently, there was something wrong with the scanner and it just decided to add a line.

Stop here if you're not finished with the puzzles.  The answers are below.

See, it's not as simple as you thought it would be.  Just wait 'til level 10.  Not to worry!  There's only 225 pages of puzzles.

Daniel David Kirwan (13 May 1950 – 8 June 2018) was a British musician whose greatest success came with his role as guitarist, singer and songwriter with the blues rock band Fleetwood Mackc between 1968 and 1972. He released three albums as a solo artist from 1975 to 1979, recorded albums with Otis Spann, Shris Youlden, and Tramp, and worked with his former Fleetwood Mac colleagues Jeremy Spencer and Christine McVie on some of their solo projects.  This one is "Jigsaw Puzzle Blues", about the closest one I could find having to do with puzzles.
