Introduction: How to Solve the Rubik's Cube
Lets gets the basics down R= turn right side clockwise Ri= turn right counter-clockwise L turn left side clockwise Li= turn left side counter clockwise F= turn front side clockwise Fi= turn front side counter clockwise U= turn top side clockwise Ui= turn top side counter clockwise Bo= turn bottom side clockwise Boi= turn bottom side counter clockwise Ba= turn back side clockwise Bai= turn back side counter clockwise

Well obviously it needs to be mixed up.
First you need to get a white cross with that center lined with its color
Next is the corners. To get the corners you need to move the cube like this: Ri Di R. Do that to the other three corners. As you see in the picture the colors have to match.
Here is where I might loose some of you. To get 2/3 layers of the cube solved you have find the color that matches the center cube. Then you look at the color on top, if the top color is on the left do these steps: U R Ui Ri Ui Fi U Fi***** make sure the matching colors are in front of you ***** If the matching colors are on the left do the following steps with the matching colors in front of you: Ui Fi U. F U R Ui Ri do that to all sides except the top
For this step the are different variables, but you do the same step. If you cube turned out to have a right angle on the yellow side: have the corner of the angle make the 2 other cubes point forwards and left. Then do: F U R Ui Ri F until you have a yellow cross. If there is a straight line have the line horizontal and do: F U R Ui Ri F your yellow side has a cross then do: R U Ri U R U U Ri do that until you have a full yellow side
After that, you going to look for a side like the green side in the picture. If you happen to find it like that have that side as the back and do: Ri. F Ri B B R Fi Ri B B R R U.
If you cube looks like this picture the have the solved side as you back. Then look at the unmatched color on the opposite side if it matches the color on the right do these steps: F F U Ri L F F Li R Ui F F. Now if it is on the left do this step: F F U L Ri F F Li R U F F.
This probably took a lot of your time and I am sorry I tried to the best of my ability to make this make sense If you didn't get it, please try again if you did congratulations.
