Assume the pancake is 2D

With todays puzzle does the pancake have any thickness i.e can we slice the pancake into 2 circular pancakes each with half the thickness or are we to assume its 2D

Yes, the puzzles should all give three digit answers. You must be misinterpreting today's puzzle...

Will all puzzle answers be 3 digit numbers? Today (15) I'm getting a much larger number but could be interpreting the puzzle wrong?

No - there is currently no way to check your answers. But on Christmas Eve, once you've attempted all 24 puzzles, a thing will appear telling you how many are right/wrong, so you can know they're all right before attempting the logic puzzle...

Just to check I'm not missing something - there's no way to check whether my answers are right or wrong?

Yes, the book starts with page 1 on the left hand side (ie the inside cover), and ends with page 754 on the right (ie the inside back cover).

Matthew. Today's (13) puzzle. Books normally have 1st two page spread being pages 2 and 3. The last in this book would be 752,753. This means there would not be a middle two page spread, there would be two...?
Did you assume 1st 2 page spread is pages 1 and 2?

I think they get harder towards the end, plus the final puzzle is probably harder.

Are the daily puzzles going to gradually get harder? They seem easier this year... Or is the final puzzle going to be more difficult?

No, there may be zeroes in the three digit numbers (but you can discard these when solving the final logic puzzle as there are no zeros in the answer to that).

Should I worry one of my 3 digit answers contains a zero?
Neal

The digits can be the same.
Matthew

Should we assume that the three digits can be the same, or must be different, unless stated otherwise?

Nope, anyone is allowed to enter.

Is the contest UK-only?
