# Solve a Rubik's Cube

Rubik's Cube is a mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture ErnQ Rubik. Originally called the "Magic Cube" by its inventor, this puzzle was renamed "Rubik's Cube" by Ideal Toys in 1980 [1] and also won the 1980 German Game of the Year special award for Best Puzzle. It is said to be the world's best-selling toy, with some 300,000,000 Rubik's Cubes and imitations sold worldwide. For more info, click here

## Step 1: The Notations

Before you can build a rubik's cube, you first need to identify what is the parts. There are:

F-Front face
R-right face
U-upper face
L-left face
D-down or lower face
B-back face

All of them to be turned clockwise, except they have apostrophes after the letter, like F', you should turn the front face counter clockwise.and if you had U2, you should turn the upper face twice, regardless on the way of turning. if you are given R'DRD' , you should turn the right side counter clockwise, down side clockwise, right side clockwise, and down side counter. Well, do this ''algorithm''6 times on a cube in solve state, you'll make it solve again. Trust me.

I think you made a typo. The second algorithm should actually be U'L'ULUFU'F'

I keep screwing up the last step >---< whyyyyy D:

Which way is D, is it to turn the bottom row ----> or <---- while the cube is flat on the table.
vincent1829 (author)  ARVash7 years ago
umm..
try to face the D face, then have it figure which way is the clockwise

in short term, it is ===>...
ok?
