Path of Puzzles 1

Hello everybody! Seth here with a new series that I’m really excited about! Each week in the series there will be some puzzles. Now, this sounds like Rage Inducing Puzzles, and you can play it like that, but in the answer section of each puzzle there will be a new puzzle you can go to next (like a world map in a video game or something.) Sometimes you will be directed to a puzzle that isn’t published yet. It will eventually be published, so please be patient for the next issue! (You won’t be directed to a puzzle number that will be published in 2 issues.)

Without further ado, the first 10 puzzles.

Start with Puzzle 1.

1. Red = 3, Orange = 6, Green = ???
2. If you roll a die, how many spots are on it?
3. What is 100 x 98 x 96 x 94… x 6 x 4 x 2 x 0?
(Nice job.) Move one line so this equation is correct: 101-102=1
How many numbers are in between 2 and 102, inclusive?
12 is 5 is 25 is 27 is 51 is 26 is 40 is 16. What is 16?
If 3 cats can catch 9 rats in 5 minutes, how many cats can catch 900 rats in 500 minutes?
What is the least amount of money that you can have, in dollars and cents, that, if you had an additional 10% of what you currently have, you’d have more than $100?
Move one straight line so this equation is correct: 644-2=10
(If you’ve reached this without Issue #2, you’ve cheated.) If A=1, B=2, C=3, etc, and to find the value of a word, you multiply all of the numbers together, what is the value of the word BO0K?
