## Introduction: How to Solve a 3 by 3 by 3 Rubik's Cube

This is a Instructable how to solve a 3 by 3 by 3 rubik's cube. All movments are self invented. And I wanted to say, that I'm german, so if you find any spellingmistakes please tell me.

## Step 1: Before You Begin

Before beginning you should know what the movments mean. If there are only the letters turn it clockwise, if there is the letter and ' turn counterclockwise. The directions "FC", "SC" and "UC" will come with arrows (→↓←t)

## Step 3: The "Cross"

First you'll do a "cross".
The Algorythmus for the first pic is:
L F' L'
The Algorythmus for the second pic is:
F2

## Step 4: First Layer

Now you will complete the first layer. You'll find everything on the pictures.
The Algorythmus for the first pic is:
F D F'
The Algorythmus for the second pic is:
L' D' L
The Algorythmus for the third pic is:
L' D2 L D L' D' L

## Step 5: Second Layer

Now you'll make the second layer!
The Algorythmus for the first pic is:
D' L' D' L D F D F'
The Algorythmus for the second pic is:
D F D F' D' L' D' L

## Step 6: Swap Corner Pieces

Now it's time to swap cornerpieces. They don't have to be turned correctly, just swaped correctly.
The algorythmus is:
B U B' U' B' R B R'

## Step 7: Turn Cornerpieces

It's time to turn the cornerpieces. The algorythmus is:
L U' L' U L U' L' D L U L' U' L U L' D'

## Step 8: Swap Edgepieces

It's time to swap the edgepieces. As the cornerpieces it doesn't mind how theyare tilted, just the posision minds now. the algorythmus is:
UCt U' UC↓ U2 UCt U' UC↓

## Step 9: Tilting Cornerpieces

You're finally at the last step! It's time to tilt the cornerpieces. The algorythmus is:
R FC→ R2 FC2 R U' R' FC2 R2 FC← R' U

Now you're finnished!!!
