The Rubik's cube is the best selling toy in the U.S.
some may think it is impossible to solve, even  Erno Rubik didn't think there was a combination to
there are 43,000,000,000,000,000,000 (that is 43 quintillion) possible combinations.
So how can you solve the cube without memorizing 43 quintillion different combinations?
there are things called algorithms that are based on mathematical equations that get pieces to places without messing up the whole cube.
   Some of you may be wondering why i wanted to learn to solve the Rubik's cube, well I am very big into math and I am Very good at memorizing things in fact I have an IQ of 120 but you don't need a high iq to learn how to solve the Rubik's cube. I learn this method last Christmas when I was bored on Christmas break and wanted something to do. It only took me a week to learn to solve it, but it wasn't like I was doing it for a week straight 24 hours a day, in fact i probably spent an hour a day max that's 7 hours max it took me to solve the Rubik's cube. So in this tutorial i will show you a beginners method that I used on how to solve the Rubik's cube and maby later i might teach you an advance method on how to solve it, but you will need to know how to solve it with the beginners method first before you move onto the advanced method.

What You Need
- A Rubik's cube
- an Attentive mindset

Step 1:

To get how to solve the Rubik's cube i will explain to you how this method solves it.
Most people think you solve the cube face by face but that is wrong you are supposed to solve one face then layer by layer.

the blue picture below shows the notation of moves that make up an algorithm

first things first you need to get the cross it doesn't matter what color it is as long as you have a cross where the colors on the sides match

Note: what I mean by the colors on the side matching is if you are solving the red faces cross the color of the edge piece should match up with it's side
