## Introduction: How to Solve Megaminx Last Layer Easy

Overview

We will learn to solve the Megaminx Last Layer in 4 steps with only 3 Algorithms.

Step 1) [EO] Orient the Edges forming the Gray Star

Step 2) [CO] Orient the Corners to get all the Grays facing up

Step 3) [EP] Permute the Edges by positioning them in the correct location

Step 4) [CP] Permute the Corners by placing them in the correct location

## Step 1: [EO] Orient the Edges Forming the Gray Star

First we must for the Gray Star on Top by Orienting the Edges with one easy Algorithm

## Step 2: [CO] Orient the Corners to Get All the Grays Facing Up

We not need to Orient of flip all the Corners so the Gray is facing up with one easy Algorithm.

## Step 3: [EP] Permute the Edges by Positioning Them in the Correct Location

Now we Permute or place the Edges in the correct position relative to the Center Colors with one easy Algorithm.

## Step 4: [CP] Permute the Corners

LAST STEP

Next with Permute or fix all the Corners by placing the in the correct location relative to the Edge pieces with no Algorithms. Just learning how to position them with logic.
