The Rubik's Cube has been around since... it was made in... well it's been around for a while. It's one of the greatest puzzles of all time. I didn't really care about it until I was 7 or so when my dad bought me one. I scrambled it and didn't solve it for years. Recently my teacher bought one and took it upon myself to learn the algorithms. In this guide/ how to I'll show you how to solve it.

Step 1: Terminology

The terminology is actually pretty simple to understand. Look at the picture below for the terminology of the actual cube. Throughout this guide I will give you algorithms one of them is R1, D1, R, D. the one next to the letter is telling that you need to turn that face COUNTER CLOCKWISE if there is no one then you turn the face CLOCKWISE. If you see a 2 in front of the letter that means turn the face twice in either direction because it will end up in the same place.
I've always wondered, how do people do that?
