comment Not able to align nodes properly
column sep={2cm,between origins}? Isn't ($(-3, \y) + (-2, \y)$) just (-5, 2*\y)? Can you complete your example to a full MWE and show what you want to achieve? I’d use only matrix for this, though.

comment A diagram for an argument to the Pythagorean Theorem
“You can nest calc syntax!” Indeed! ($(A)!0.5!(B)!0.8cm!90:(B)$) works, too.

comment Aligning table within latex editor
@AhmedSalhin Go to Options > Configure TeXstudio > Editor > Font Family. There you can select a fixed-width font. Next to the font dropdown menu is also a "Show Only Monospaced Fonts" checkbox which hides all non-fixed-width fonts from the dropdown menu. Under LaTeX > Manipulate Tables exists a command to “Align Columns” (it is also in the button row at the top of the window). This needs a tabular environment (I guess tabularx works, too) and even checks for column specifications.

comment Define an edge style that get information from the nodes it is connected to
How should TikZ decide which side of the node it should connect to? What percusse has done in a let … in path specification can be hidden inside a to path (where one has access to the specified coordinates via \tikztostart and \tikztotarget, here A and B respectively).

comment Block diagrams in TikZ: Is there a simpler way to draw my block diagram?
Without looking up, I believe the ' variants of the arrows are the [round] variants of the new arrows, so latex' = Latex[round] and stealth' = Stealth[round]. — If you use one arrow tip throughout a scope (might as well be a tikzpicture) you should add >=arrowTip to that scope and only use ->, <- and <-> (or the reverse combinations) in path specifications. Specifying >=… and -> (or similar) is not really logical. — With so many paths having the same style it might be a good idea to use edge with a few well-defined to paths.

comment How should I write math?
We cannot tell you what you are supposed to do and what you should use. Maybe you can add the worries you have with writing math with (La)TeX macros (which is most likely the superior way to write math in (La)TeX): Special aligning? Special functions? Big (in size) functions?

comment Automatically generate multiplication table and colour specific rown, columns, and diagonals
Shouldn't n * (n+6) color 7 = 1 * 7, 16 = 2 * 8, 27 = 3 * 9, etc?

comment Tikz: adjusting pin anchor
I feel I could have used better (and more consistent) examples but hopefully this suffices.

@Adelyn I've added some explanations. Do they help? The through library is explained in the manual.

comment Tikz draw an accurate angle in a circle
@percusse I don't think. If I use scale=1 but 2 as the radius for the circle I get the same output. Similar inprecision can be seen with scale=1 and radius of 1.
