### Coded Image

After seeing how efficient this community is when facing logic puzzles, I decided to create a slightly more difficult puzzle, still easy though, to entertain the community for a longer period of time. Logic puzzle, basic knowledge required and detecting sequences.

The problem can be solved.
Its difficulty is fairly easy.
After the yellow lines, any value for the colours is RESET. Maybe sometimes they are not reset, who knows...?

Not exactly... I'm not sure about the place you messed something up, though. Good attempt, anyway, this one was fairly complex. The last number was correct though

Huh, I wans't 100% on the first on, but I really thought I had the second one figured out. Here's my solution to the second:

Spoiler:
The pink and cyan labeled columns are number in binary. The thing off to the right is the mapping function. So when you are given a red/blue sequence with a pink/cyan ending, it means find the matching row in the mapping function, then consult the number stored in the appropriate table.

the green/black blocks are elementary functions (+,-,x,/). grey is an equals sign

The orange lines are numbers expressed in pixels

This means that the lines translate to:
1+1=2
2-1=1
1x2=2
5x3=15
2+2=4
8-5=3

Now looking below the grey line, you get:
8 x 3 - 13 = Number2

so Number2 is 11

Can you give me a hint where I messed up?

That one is perfect. The first one is correct and the last one is correct too! Seems like I messed the sum up (reason in the spoiler)
Spoiler:
I wanted it to add up a total of 42, like in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Why has everything been changed to this strangely pronounced English?
