comment Is it correct to say that all common chords are built using the major scales?
I'm not sure I understand what you mean by a chord being drawn from a scale. Have you considered such relatively common chords as 1-3b-5-7 (minor with major 7), 1-3b-5b-7bb (diminished) or 1-3-5# (augmented)?

comment What does an “L” shape mean beside a note in the lower staff?
No, the accepted answer is correct unless the notes were written by someone who likes to confuse people with nonstandard meanings of standard notation.

comment Why are there twelve notes in an octave?
I don't see why the divisors are important here. Because for example the equal tempered tritone has a frequency ratio 2^(6/12) which is one of the worst approximations (compared to just intonation) in the scale whereas the perfect fourth (2^(5/12)) is one of the best (see the link in Matthew's answer). Another little comment: If one frequency is 200Hz and another is 600Hz then, assuming they're synchronized, they will be in the same phase 200 times every second, i.e. every 3rd cycle of the faster one.

comment Really confused about x's on a note?
Nonstandard markings are usually explained in a pre/postface (or footnotes). If you don't have those you probably have a copy so go find the original! ;)

comment strange fingering in moonlight sonata
@terpsichore: That's very much up to debate, as is the tempo which here is a funny combination of adagio and alla breve.

@ecline6: I still think that fingering is overly complicated but yeah, you can make it work that way.
