Solving sudoku
Even supposedly hard sudoku puzzles can typically be solved relying on the basics plus trial and error, it's just a matter of how much time you have to waste. If it's too many steps ahead for you to memorise you can just make another copy of it and manually input the right solution.

One hard suduko can be converted into multiple easier versions to solve where at least one of these versions will have a solution.

Advances strategies such as alternating interference chains can be useful to know but it's not really necessary.

Cubes
These puzzles are generally not super-difficult once you know or have figured out algorithms, in the case of the standard 3x3x3 you do not even need to know much if anything in terms of algorithms to solve it, you can grind until you get lucky enough to solve it.

One of the more difficult puzzles is the crazy 4x4x4 III

Extreme III
These puzzles are still unsolved despite efforts to crack them, still no major effort has been made to solve them.

This can be being the first to crack come closed sourced software (such as horizon: zero dawn)
