If you're good at chess, you most likely have a mathematical mind.
I don't entirely agree with your statement, I think it would be more accurate to say "if you're good at chess, there is a strong possibility you have a reasonable grasp of logical truth and memory..", that is simply by making an observation of master level players.
Kasparov oncce alluded to an experiment in germany.
Two groups of students of similar strength - were enrolled in the same math class. one group was also taught chess principles.
When the exam was taken, the group with the chess lessons clearly did better in the same meth test.
The video is on youtube where kasparov speaks about the virtues of chess (low cost, improves analytical skills etc) and pushes to popularise it in schools

Thing is there are a lot of other ways to improve analytical skills that are more direct, and therefore usually mor effective.
Btw, when I opened this thread I saw this ad next to it:
Interestingly, I've never seen this ad on chess.com before. Is it a conicidence that it's on this thread?
And now that I look at the problem again, I suddenly realized that it's not a valid problem. In the original ad there was a space after "5 +," and you were supposed to fill it out. Which I just realized is impossible with just the information given.
Even if something were plugged into that space, it is still unsolvable, being one equation with two unknowns.
3 variables & 1 equation.
That's why you need to go to their website and pay lots of money!
