Introduction Notation

Ever wonder how to solve a Rubik’s Cube? Well, this guide will teach you with a You will need to learn move notation in order to use this solution.

simple solution that anyone can understand! Here are some things you should

know before you begin. The six cube faces right left up down front back

will be represented by R L U D F B

Pieces

There are three different kinds of pieces.

R’ L’ U’ D’ F’ B’

Turns that face counterclockwise

Centers Edges Corners

In this guide, unimportant parts of the cube are grayed out, and important parts are

R2 L2 U2 D2 F2 B2

marked with X’s.

Turn that face 180 degrees

Many people make the mistake to think that the Rubik’s cube has 54 “stickers” that

need to be solved. In fact, it only has 20 “pieces” (8 corners and 12 edges). Method

This guide teaches the layer-by-layer (LBL) method. The first layer is the most

intuitive and the last layer requires the most memorization. There are a total of 11

algorithms in this solution that must be learned in order to solve the Rubik’s cube.

The First Layer bring it to the right X. Whichever X the white sticker ends up in is the

target.

Solving the first layer is a two-step process: solve the edges to make a cross and

then solve the corners. Remember that edges and corners have multiple stickers 3. Move the goal into the target with either a U, U’, or U2 move. Then,

and belong in a specific position! move the edge to the target the way you figured out in step 2. Finally,

return the target to the goal by undoing the U, U’, or U2 move you made

before. For case 1, the set of moves would be (U F’ U’). For case 2, the

set of moves would be (U’ R U).

Correct Incorrect

This step is the most intuitive step, and it takes the most words to describe

completely. Skip this section if you are able to solve it on your own! Use an F or F’ move to bring the edge into the second layer and use the method

above to solve.

The very first thing you need to do is find an edge you want to solve. This would

be any edge with a white sticker on it.

Solving the corners

If the edge is in the second layer

For the remainder of this solution, you will hold the cross on the bottom. This

makes the remaining pieces easier to find.

Case 1 Case 2

1. Figure out where the edge belongs by checking the non-white sticker on

the edge. For case 1, the other sticker is red, so the edge must belong in Again, the first thing you need to do is find a corner you want to solve. This would

belongs in the front X. Whichever X the edge belongs in is the goal.

2. Figure out how to bring the white sticker to the top. For case 1, an F’

2. Bring the corner above the goal by using either a U, U’, or U2 move. The Second Layer

3. Apply one of the following algorithms. The second layer only has four edges that need to be solved. The centers never

move, so they are already solved! First, find an edge to solve: this would be any

remaining edge that does not have a yellow sticker on it.

Algorithm

If the edge is in the last layer

(U R U’ R’)

1. Figure out where the edge belongs by checking the two stickers on the

edge. Wherever the edge belongs in is the goal.

2. Bring the edge next to the goal so that the front stickers match by using

either a U, U’, or U2 move.

In this beginner solution, the last layer is broken down into four steps and requires The goal for this step is to move the corners into the right places. The following

two steps, but would require learning 78 algorithms. Use this repeatedly until all the corners are in the right place.

The goal for this step is to make a yellow cross. There are three possible (R U2 R’ U’ R U2) (L’ U R’ U’ L)

situations, and this 6-move algorithm will cycle through these in order.

Positioning the edges

This is the final step in solving the cube. There are four possible situations, and

this 9-move algorithm will cycle through these.

situations, and this 7-move algorithm will cycle through these. The following

for these algorithms.
