Master the Rubik 3x3 Cube with This Fast and Simple Method for Beginners


How to Solve a Rubik 3x3 Cube in 7 Easy Steps




Introduction




The Rubik's Cube is one of the most popular and challenging puzzles in the world. It was invented in 1974 by a Hungarian professor named Ernő Rubik, who originally called it the "Magic Cube". The cube consists of 27 smaller cubes, called cubies, that can be twisted on three axes. The goal is to restore the cube to its original state, where each of the six faces has only one color.


Many people think that solving a Rubik's Cube is impossible, or that it requires a lot of memorization and practice. However, this is not true. In fact, anyone can learn how to solve a Rubik's Cube in just seven easy steps, using some simple algorithms and logic. In this article, we will show you how to do it, step by step, with clear explanations and illustrations. By the end of this article, you will be able to solve any scrambled Rubik's Cube in minutes, or even seconds!

Step 1: Make a white cross




How to find and move the white edge pieces




The first step is to make a white cross on one face of the cube. To do this, you need to find and move the four white edge pieces, which are the ones that have one white sticker and one other color sticker. You can start with any face, but we recommend starting with the bottom face, as it will make things easier later on.


To find a white edge piece, look around the cube and locate one that has a white sticker on it. Then, twist the cube until that piece is on the bottom layer. Next, you need to move that piece to its correct position on the bottom face, where it matches the color of the side center piece. For example, if you have a white and red edge piece, you need to move it to the bottom face between the white center and the red center.


To move an edge piece from the bottom layer to its correct position on the bottom face, you can use one of these three simple moves:



  • If the edge piece is already on the bottom face, but not in its correct position, just twist the bottom layer until it is.



  • If the edge piece is on the bottom layer, but not on the bottom face, twist either the left or right layer until it is on the front face. Then, twist either the front or back layer until it is on the top face. Finally, twist either the left or right layer until it is on the bottom face.



  • If the edge piece is on the top layer, twist either the left or right layer until it is on the front face. Then, twist the bottom layer until the color of the edge piece matches the color of the side center piece. Finally, twist either the front or back layer until it is on the bottom face.



Repeat this process for the other three white edge pieces, until you have a white cross on the bottom face.


How to match the colors of the side centers




Once you have a white cross on the bottom face, you need to make sure that the colors of the side centers match the colors of the white edge pieces. For example, if you have a white and red edge piece on the bottom face, you need to have a red center piece on the side face next to it.


To match the colors of the side centers, you can use one of these two simple moves:

  • If the color of the side center does not match the color of the white edge piece, twist either the left or right layer until it does.



  • If the color of the side center matches the color of the white edge piece, but it is on the opposite side, twist either the front or back layer 180 degrees until it is on the correct side.



Repeat this process for the other three side centers, until you have a white cross with matching colors on all four sides.


Step 2: Solve the white corners




How to locate and orient the white corner pieces




The next step is to solve the four white corner pieces, which are the ones that have one white sticker and two other color stickers. You need to find and move them to their correct positions on the bottom layer, where they match both the color of the side center and the color of the adjacent edge piece. For example, if you have a white, red and blue corner piece, you need to move it to the bottom layer between the red center, the blue center and the white cross.


To find a white corner piece, look around the cube and locate one that has a white sticker on it. Then, twist either the left or right layer until that piece is on either the front or back face. Next, you need to orient that piece so that its white sticker is facing either up or down. For example, if you have a white, red and blue corner piece on the front face, you need to orient it so that its white sticker is either on top or on bottom.


To orient a corner piece so that its white sticker is facing up or down, you can use one of these three simple moves:



  • If its white sticker is already facing up or down, do nothing.



  • If its white sticker is facing front or back, twist either the front or back layer 180 degrees until its white sticker is facing up or down.



  • If its white sticker is facing left or right, twist either the left or right layer 90 degrees in either direction until its white sticker is facing up or down.



Repeat this process for the other three white corner pieces, until you have four white corner pieces with their white stickers facing up or down.


How to use algorithms to place them correctly




Once you have four white corner pieces with their white stickers facing up or down, you need to use some algorithms to place them correctly on the bottom layer. An algorithm is a sequence of moves that changes the position and orientation of some cubies without affecting others. You can use letters to represent each move: F for front, B for back, L for left, R for right, U for up and D for down. A letter followed by an apostrophe means a counterclockwise move (e.g., F' means turn the front face counterclockwise), while a letter followed by a 2 means a 180-degree move (e.g., F2 means turn the front face 180 degrees).


To place a corner piece correctly on the bottom layer, you can use one of these two algorithms:



  • If its white sticker is facing up, use this algorithm: R' D' R D



  • If its white sticker is facing down, use this algorithm: F D F' D'



To apply an algorithm, you need to hold the cube so that the corner piece you want to place is on the front-right-top position. Then, you need to perform the moves in order from left to right. For example, if you want to place a corner piece with its white sticker facing up, you need to turn the right face counterclockwise, then the bottom face counterclockwise, then the right face clockwise, and then the bottom face clockwise.


Repeat this process for the other three corner pieces, until you have a complete white layer on the bottom of the cube.


Step 3: Solve the middle layer




How to identify and pair up the edge pieces




The next step is to solve the four edge pieces that belong to the middle layer. These are the ones that have two stickers of the same color as two adjacent side centers. For example, if you have a red and blue edge piece, it belongs to the middle layer between the red center and the blue center.


To identify an edge piece that belongs to the middle layer, look at the top layer and find one that does not have a yellow sticker on it. Then, twist either the left or right layer until that piece is on the front face. Next, you need to pair up that piece with its corresponding side center. For example, if you have a red and blue edge piece on the front face, you need to pair it up with either t
