Yes, a cube has 6 sides. What happened to me when I did this step was that I got confused that they were giving us several starter steps; there are three lines in this step. Some people started thinking about how to complete the Rubik’s Cube back in the 80’s, and in 40 years have got little further than one side. This will make an upside down “T” with one color. Now, to memorize it…. @Mister X: Thank you so much that helped alot! i have 2 of the blue pieces in the right places but the other two are switched what in the world do i do? There are white, blue, green, yellow, red and orange. Take for example the first of the three rows, try to get your piece(green) to the position in the bottom layer as depicted in the diagram, then do the 4 moves in row 1 as shown. You will have it guaranteed. (HINT: If you ever get stuck where there aren’t any useful pieces on the top layer then do one of the moves below in reverse. My name is Paul – leave a note for me if this helped. For having ‘T’, adjust a green side such that each vertical side color should be equal to the color of the center piece. This only works a little. It’s legal; you won’t mess anything up. heyyyy the rubic’s cube have six side what color of side, I’ve tried the first scenario about ten times and it goes to 2 green on top 2 red on the right side why is this, I get one of them with the two colours down the side in the right place, but then i’m not left with any of the other possibilities to spin with any of the three examples…, Can anyone tell be why there are 3 cubes below ‘before’? If all 4 corners are in the right place you can … I GOT IT RIGHT AT FIRST GO. How am I supposed to make the T’s? I can’t get it to work. Give it another try. How to Solve a 2x2 Rubik’s Cube fast? they should have two boxes touching just the same. I did have some problems with this step but then realized what I could do to fix it. I have learned that on this step, the corners will always rotate counter-clockwise if they are on the left, and clockwise if they are on the right. First of all, make sure the DRB piece is that "empty" (unsolved … not missing!) orange and white are on the other side). I am a beginner. <3 this site!!! This will help you understand the mechanics of the Cube and more quickly solve it. 479001600. These steps are very easy to understand. - If the corner piece is already on the bottom face, then rotate the bottom until the corner is directly below its intended location. It’s wonderful! the middle pieces fall in the right place but then the corner pieces are always stuffed up :/ does this move also solve the corners or only the middle.. Once you have the cross at the top, the next step is to get all of the top middle pieces to be on the correct sides. The D face has already been rotated so that the DRF location does not contain a white corner piece. I had to try it a few times to get it. Can anyone help me out? Ok, now i have fixed it… almost. I keep getting one side done, but i lose it when i try to do another side. I don’t know which one is the first step of the move and which one is the second one…, This isn’t working for me after I finish the first line the green and reds on the edge are switched so it goes green green red red instead of green red green red. Okay after many times doing this step I got the top to be all full yet the sides were not. For example, in the “after” picture below, the front corner piece should have one red side, one blue side, and one yellow side, even if those colors aren’t with the correct face yet. So now one side should be done, except for one corner piece. There are 8! Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License. NOW turn the cube as instructed and look closely. This page shows how to do it. People keep asking what doing the move ‘in reverse’ means, and there’s still no explanation. I had the same problem. What exactly does it mean to “do one of the moves below in reverse”? It’s at times like this i wish i were einstein….. Yeah i have a problem, but i’m pretty close to the final result of this step. And does the green middle have to be on top an the red middle be on the right? Once that was cleared up in my mind, the moves went very smoothly. I finally solved the cube! Each color needs to be at the right place, and here is where you need a little practice to arrange everything correctly. I seem to have trouble getting the last part. One thing to note when doing this move, make sure the original UFL piece does not contain the color of the bottom face (white in the ongoing example). On the sides, i’ve completeted 3 out of the 4 T’s. I tried this move a few times, and it has worked almost completely, but it always leaves the bottom left square different on all sides. You have now made it to the seventh and final step – rotating the corner pieces so that they are on the correct sides of the cube. The remaining edge pieces are the BR piece and the UR piece. There are two ways to do this depending on which side the “T” is on when you’re looking at the cube. look at the top diagram on the left, instead of having the green showing with the respective color underneath have the respective color showing with green underneath so your cubes starting position should be green on top, respective color right panel, respective color with green underneath. The move is as follows. Hold the cube so that one of the pieces in the UFL position and the other is somewhere on the U slice. For the 3rd example (the one that says green under), why wouldn’t one just turn the face surrounding the red center piece twice? (So in the previous example for the FL piece, first turn the cube, then apply D′.). step 2, has 3 scenarios presented. If the piece is in the middle slice of the cube (the second layer): Hold the cube so that white is still on the U face and your piece is in the FR location. ), whenever i do the move the blue piece wont go anywhere. I have no idea what to do next…, These steps are not working they kept on switching like three blue with orange,white,red on top and one blue with yellow with yellow on top and after using these steps it becomes three blue with orange,red,yellow and one blue with white with white on top. Now two thirds of the cube should be done, less two pieces: a middle layer edge piece and its adjacent corner piece, that appears to take a chunk out of the bottom (white) layer. The Rubik's cube isn't an impossible puzzle and it can be solved by everyone.You might have scrambled and are looking for a solution (That's why you came here in the first place).Even Ernol Rubik's ,the creator of the puzzle learnt the solution after 1 month so if you are unable to solve it yourself then it's no big problem.. There aren't any comments yet. https://ruwix.com/the-rubiks-cube/how-to-solve-the-rubiks-cube The Yellow-Orange piece is in the UB location. :Green top center,red right center,green front bottom middle,red under bottom green. Say the UFL piece is Blue-Yellow-Orange. If you started with white, these pieces will be colored white-red, white-orange, white-blue and white-green (using a Rubik's brand cube). When the second corner piece has been oriented, turn U to undo the previous twisting (this should be fairly obvious). Identify the pieces. This step should work very easily, and if it doesn’t, use that thing inside your head (the name beats me at this current time…) to work out just this one step, because it is REALLY easy…. It took Erno Rubik (the inventor of the Rubik’s Cube) one month to learn how to do a Rubik’s Cube. For the last “starting picture” example, do I read the diagrams straight across or diagonally? Either F′ or R will need to be applied, depending on the orientation of the edge piece to be moved. Also note that it is satisfactory to rotate the U face before the move so that a particular corner piece can be moved into the UFL position so that it can be worked on. And yes, random guy possibly below me, I have also completed the cube on this one step. I keep on doing this, but it never turns out how the picture shows :[, when it says , the middle layer turns, does it mean that the layers next to it turn upward? There is an other chance. You must bring all of the other pieces with that color to that side. We will rotate them so the colors all match the correct sides up in the next step. @Garret i dont get it after i do the step on the bottom i end up with the diagram on the top of step 2, I can get the top row solid side full green but I cant make the t’s properly, someone help please. That might be the biggest mistake people were making. This algorithm works. The only middle layer edge piece that is not to be positioned is the one right above the corner piece that was not positioned correctly in step 2. I would love to help again. All of these rotations are only done once? It's even possible to learn it in one day.So let's start: Wow by accident, with this step I COMPLETED THE CUBEE! Before you begin positioning edge pieces, you should rotate the middle layer so that all of the center pieces are correctly positioned. Luckily, the pieces are correct. To continue, simply keep rotating D or D′ and moving the cube to set up the same position, with an "empty" corner in DRF, the intended location at RF, and the piece to move in the U slice. Apply B U B′ U B U B′ U2 (, To rotate a piece clockwise, apply L D2 L′ F′ D2 F (, To rotate a piece counter-clockwise, apply F′ D2 F L D2 L′ (. What do you do if the yellow and red block, like in the third picture is up at the top with the green plus, and not on the bottom? I got it!!! Here is only two types. Of particular interest is the minimum number of moves from any permutation of the cube’s cubies back to the initial solved state. The first step is to form a cross on the top face of the cube. Note that in some cases the piece may already be in the correct location, but oriented incorrectly. So, some of the following moves are needed (be sure to do those in the first step first): There should now be a white cross formed on the top of the cube. There are several different sized Rubik's Cube games. By the mid 1980's, an estimated fifth of the world's population had attempted to solve the cube… I’m having the same problem. This should complete this step. This is how the Rubik's Cube should look when you start this step. Then, refer to the pictures below to solve. These pieces are called the “center pieces” of the Rubik’s cube. Well, i could decipher this to an extent. However, when actually trying to solve the cube quickly, instead of applying U′ in the previous move, look to find the next edge piece that is required to put in the right location. Now, apply U until the piece to be moved is in the UF or UR (depending on the previous move) location, and then F or R′, to get it back to normal. The key is to rotate the top alot. Any advice for me, if you would please….. Start with the first green and red with the first picture. Congratulations, your cube should now be solved! The pieces that compose the Rubik's Cube are called Cubies, and the color stickers on the cubes are called facelets. Find two incorrectly rotated corner pieces that are on the same slice. The front three corners switch spots in a clockwise rotation as shown in the “after” picture below. This cube has only corner pieces and each corner piece contains 3 of the 6 colors. Let’s say my upper color is blue, and every middle cube at the top has blue, either on the side or at the top. Note that with this method only one clockwise and one counter-clockwise twist can be done; other methods twist 3 corners but have side-effects on edges. Below are the most common moves for this step. It‘s okay to have a blue piece in the front right position as well, but the key is to make sure that there is a blue piece on that front left side. After sharing the video, many people asked where this… After doing this, the top pieces will all be in the correct order but will need to be rotated around the cube until they are on their correct sides. I’m following every step and it’s not working. What about the corners? Then rotate U the desired amount. Let’s concentrate on the original 3x3x3 Rubik cube. What do you mean exactly by, “when you have two adjacent sides in correct place”? After only a few repetitions, they will be simple and that's what you do. @Garret: I can see how this could be confusing. I’m getting every block except for the corner one! Admin please publish that one also.. OK, here is my problem. My underside is green and the two oranges sit on the blue side…. This may also be a Rubik’s cube which is a cube with a variety of colors on it with a single color reserved for each side and nine blocks of each color. HELP. It’s a little confusing. The moves from the other steps should become very natural after a short time. Discover the tricks the planet's fastest speedcubers use to challenge for the Red Bull Rubik's Cube World Cup. Doesn’t a cube have 6 sides? This penultimate step consists on putting the corners into their right position, without paying attention to their orientation.So, we have to clearly know what it means that a corner is in its right position in a Rubik’s Cube: So when I do it in reverse it messes everything up. If your cube doesn’t match any of the three starting positions shown below you may need to move some pieces around to get there. Now, turn the top layer of the cube to match either of the “before” pictures below. I can get most of them but then I get stuck on the last 2 colors. It’s rotate top counter clock wise, rotate left up, rotate top clock wise, rotate left down, rotate top counter clock wise, rotate front clock wise, rotate top counter clock wise, rotate front counter clock? its really confusing! What shall I do? Then the move (L D2 L′) is applied again to undo the cube jumbling as well as move the corner to the correct position. I just reviewed this step and it seems to work fine for me. Then apply R2 again to get to the original configuration (demo). You know you are starting with a very specific scenario in which all the things are in a fixed position. Therefore, it must be rotated. Then, apply R′ or B. For example, the original Rubik's Cube is called “3x3.” This means that there are three layers to the Rubik's Cube- a top, a middle, and a final layer. Make sure you are looking at the picture right i did about 40 revelations or so before i realised i kept turning the cube slightly to the right ever time, all you have to do…is repeat the thingy like 5 times…u dont even need to change positins, What about if I don’t have a blue piece in that position, I have the cross but two edge pieces from the sides are switched, and only two of them are in the right position. This is awesome! What am i doing wrong? OK so I tried step 1 but my Rubik’s cube ended up in my wall. SP.268 The Mathematics of the Rubik’s Cube possible arrangements of the Rubik’s cube. The cube should be scrambled. similarly, get your piece(green) to the position in the bottom layer as depicted by diagram in row 2, then perform the 4 moves in row 2 as shown. I hoped this helped you guys out. To move a piece into position, rotate the cube about its vertical axis, so that the intended location is the FR location. If you get stuck again try including a link to a picture of your cube. Then continue on the other three sides to the left or right of the right side on the diagrahm. You know how you are suppose to have the color that you want in a specific place at the top in order for you to have all matching colors in the middle, well in my case I have all of the colors except one blue. A useful tip is that, when you have two adjacent sides in the correct place, rotate the cube in your hands so that those two sides are in the back right and front right positions, then repeat this move once more. There are 43 quintillion potential ways to arrange the squares but only one solution. This step, along with the next step, are the most difficult to teach because there are so many possible starting situations. I’ve tried starting the cube according to each option above, but when I finish not all the cross is completed. I seem to be having the same problems. The aim is to get the correct pieces in the UL, UB, UR and UF locations. 1. For those having trouble: If your cube looks like the top cube, then ONLY follow the first two lines of moves. Then do R or B′ (to undo the first part of this move). HOLDING THE CUBE: Hold the Rubik’s Cube as shown, NOW twist the top face until at least 2 corners are in the right location as A, B or A, D or B, C as shown below. These are the moves that you should make with the Rubik's Cube. In this step, you will move the top corners so that they are in the correct places. This cube has only corner pieces and each corner piece contains 3 of the 6 colors. This pattern may need to be applied up to three times. I’ve have changed my cube so that the red is where the green is supposed to be and have completed the side but i cant get the t’s to show HELP! The 3×3 Rubik’s cube has 12 edges. Before you start this step, flip the cube over so the face that is complete is now the bottom. what happens next? The original (3×3×3) Rubik’s Cube has eight corners and twelve edges. You must do this on four sides in order to make a cross like the “after” picture below. I can complete one side of the cube, i.e. Now apply R′ D2 R D R′ D′ R (demo): Note that what is being done is R′ D2 R to move the white side off the bottom of the cube, so that one of the moves in the previous section can be used. Tried it numerous times. the middle layer means turn two sides down next to each other and get the down one back up. I’m Miklós from Hungary. Also, the move for this step merely swaps three of the corner pieces in a counter-clockwise fashion, namely the front-right to the back-right to the back-left and to the front-right again. I am stuck every time I go to put the last square on top I simply knock another off. Hello to everyone here. it isn’t explained here.. If anyone here has completed step one, please help me out!!! I’ve done this quite a few times now. Or do I just keep trying this step until my cube looks like the picture? 0 OR 0, if your not getting that keep trying make sure your looking at the right side of the rubix cube, if your doing it on the wrong side or twisting in the wrong direction it won’t turn out right. But i still don’t get how you get those yellow and red pieces there? However,there are no red cubes on the bottom row, so i’m kind of stuck. feels great..! How to Solve a 2x2 Rubik’s Cube fast? In this case take it out first (i.e., put any edge piece with the color whose center is opposite white on the cube into that location) and then put it back in that spot. If a white-other color edge piece is on the U face: If white is in the U position, rotate the U face until the edge is lined up with its center. and when i do the first part agian it takes me to this crazy state, I need help on step 2 but I like this program it is easy for kids my (10 years ) but hard at the same time. I can only get this to work for two sides at a time. Rotate the cube a quarter turn counter-clockwise.) If the white and yellow sides are correct but not the red and orange then face the white towards you and do : right down, top right, right up, top right, right down, top right, top right, right up, right up, top left, right down, top left, right up, top left, top left, right down, top left. In other words, apply all three of these moves in any sequence to an all-edges correct cube, and the result will be an all-edges correct cube. Should I turn it clockwise, counterclockwise, turn my room, or just screw it? (For example, the FL piece is to be put in place. Simply line up the top-layer edge pieces with their respective centers. Don’t worry if the colors of the corner pieces don’t match with their correct sides yet, we’re just making sure that the corner pieces are in the correct spot on the cube. [math]\ [/math] [See also these answers: 1000x1000x1000 (even cubes in general),[math]\ [/math] 6x6x6, [math]\ [/math] 7x7x7.] The first part is to solve three of these (UF, UL, UB), and the second part is to solve the other two together. What does it mean by “do one of the steps below in reverse” how do i do a step in reverse? To do moves in this part, first of all move a piece into the BR location, then move it to the U face, to one of those UF, UL, or UB positions. At the top my cube is missing all but one pice. The reason that only three and not four will be put into place is that this method uses a "working space" which greatly simplifies the later steps. ;P. i should follow the column? It says do a step in the reberse order. How to Solve the Rubik's Cube in Seven Steps. This step, like the previous step, will most likely need to be repeated several times. In our example pictures this is any corner piece with green in it. Here's an explicit example – the UFL piece needs rotating counter-clockwise, and the UFR piece needs rotating clockwise. I tried to move on to step 5 and thought maybe the cross would assemble itself, and I got all of the blue squares except the one that would make a cross. There are six sides on a cube. If the piece is inverted in the U layer, then place the edge in the F layer and perform F U′ R U (. I still haven’t done it after 20 goes. Be repeating know you are looking at the center pieces of the cube to have getting. Pieces will all how to arrange rubik's cube positioned, to the beginning a 2x2x2, a 3x3x3 and a 4x4x4 cube short.
