Reading is most basic skill required for solving problem. Good Reading skills always help in understanding fast.
Everyone knows 2+2 is equals to 4. It is very easy because we can read "2+2" but if i ask same question in chinese as 两个+两个, you will be unable to answer this question even though it is most easy problem out there. If you can't read, you will not be able to solve easiest of problems.

Solving a big problem is very hard but breaking a big problem into small problem and solving smaller problems individually is easy. Beaking down big problems into small problems is required skill in solving problems in academics and real life.
Solving 17 x 19 + (800 / 400) x 9 + 69 - 41 looks very hard but if we break it down into smaller problems, makes this memoth problem easy to solve.
This is the most underrated skill in problem solving. All the problems whether in academics or in real life required previously learnt knowledge. By memorization, we store information which can be used in solving problems. Not only it helps in solving problems, it speeds up the problem solving process.
For example, if you want to solve 7699803 + 8921087, we need to know the sum of single digits such as 7 + 3, 8+0, 9+1, 7+8. Without knowing these sums, we can not solve the problem. You must have noticed that you used memorized knowledge to solve the above problems. Also you never counted 7+3, as you already know it is 10 because, this is also stored in memory.
Almost every problem we solve, we use memorization skill in one way other.
This skill works with memorization. Once you remember the memorized knowledge, next thing is to compare this knowledge with the problem at hand.
For example: If you know how to find area of a rectangle with length equals to A and breadth equals to B. Area of such rectangle is AxB. Now if you see a problem where you were asked to find area of rectange with length 5 and breadth equals 4. To solve this, you will recall that area of rectangle is length x breadth and by comparision, you will put length as 5 and breadth as 4. Now you will multiply both length and breadth and get the area as 20.
Learnign to compare things can help students a lot in solving problems.
This skill is helpful in deciding between two equivalent situation by using other skills and knowledge. This skill also help in finding differences between various options.
