    Watch at: 00:00 / 00:00:20[Music]hi everyone my name is Phil today I'llbe teaching you how to solve the 3x3Rubik's cube using an easy method thismethod is easy because it's broken downinto small steps each with an obviousand well-defined goal the method isdesigned to minimize intense thinkingand memorization in fact the only thingWatch at: 00:20 / 00:40you really have to memorize is one formof sequence in several applications ofit after watching this video you will beable to solve the cube and also be ableto teach others as well before we gointo the method of solving the cubelet's explore some basics and backgroundinfoWatch at: 00:40 / 01:00this is a 3x3 cube for the purpose ofour tutorial there are two ways tovisualize this puzzle first is side byside this cube has six sides each with adifferent color the Centers of thesesides act as swivels and they stay putrelative to each other for example nomatter how much I mix up the cube theWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20yellow side will always be opposite ofthe white side secondly you can think ofthe Cubist layers you can think oflayers like stories in the building eachlayer sits on top of one another exceptfor of course the bottom layer here theterms we will use to describe the layersgoes as follows the first layer is onWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40the bottom and the last layer is on thetop the middle one is what we call thesecond layer the basis for our solvingmethod is to visualize the cube as apuzzle with three layers now let's takethe cube apart and check out thecomponents of the puzzle you'll noticethat there are three different types ofpieces on the cube the first type ofpiece is called the center piece eachWatch at: 01:40 / 02:00center piece holds one sticker there aresix centers in total because thecenter's don't move relative to eachother the color of the center willultimately decide the color of each facefor example if the side has a red centerthe entire side should be red when thecube is solved the second type of pieceis an edge which holds two stickers anWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20edge is a type of piece that fits inbetween two centers for example thisblue and red edge fits between the blueand red centers the third type of pieceis a corner which has three stickersthis corner is red white and blue andfits between the red white and blueCenter pieces each piece is unique onWatch at: 02:20 / 02:40the cube there will only be one whiteCenter one green orange edge and one redright in blue corner along these linesthere will be certain pieces that do notexist for example there will never be agreen blue edge as the center pieces areopposite that's about it for backgroundinformationWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00now let's talk about how the cube moveseach side can be rotated clockwise orcounter clockwise you can make a singleor even a double turn these moves on acube can be denoted with cube notationwhich begins with associating each sideof the cube with a letter the letters weWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20use here are are L u DF and B our standsfor write L stands for left you for up Dfor down F for front and B for back inthis tutorial we'll only be using our LU and F a plain letter means a clockwiseWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40turn of that face with respect to thatface as if you were looking directly atit for example a you would instruct usto turn the upper side clockwise once aletter followed by a prime symbol meansa counterclockwise turn so a u primewould instruct us to turn the upper sidecounterclockwise once if you did a u andWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00then a u Prime the cube would return toits original state because the U Primeundoes the u double turns are notatedwith a 2 following the letter so an R 2denotes a double turn on the right faceand doing another R 2 returns the cubeWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20to its original state direction does notmatter so much here as turning asideclockwise twice is the same as turningit counterclockwise twice let's try anotation exercise for this exercise trydoing the following moves are you rprime u prime in plain English thisWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40string of moves instructs us to move theright face once clockwise then move theupper face once clockwise after thatmove the right face oncecounterclockwise to finish move theupper face once counterclockwise if youdid this correctly in a solved cube 2/3Watch at: 04:40 / 05:00of your top face should still be thesame color repeating the string of movesfive more times six times in totalreturns the cube to its original statethere are a lot more types of turns andnotations but the ones mentioned in thissection of the vidare the ones that will be used to teachthe method at this point we know how theWatch at: 05:00 / 05:20puzzle works its basic rules and how toturn now let's take a look at the methodand then apply our knowledge to solvethe cubefor simplicity we will break this stepdown into two separate sub steps thefirst one is called Daisy and the secondone finishes up the cross for good weWatch at: 05:20 / 05:40call the first step Daisy becausedaisies have yellow centers and whitepetals the goal of this step is togather edges with white stickers aroundthe yellow Center for our purposes theedges with white stickers will be calledthe white edges this should take onlyone two three moves for each sticker andit is completely intuitive we feel theWatch at: 05:40 / 06:00best way to teach this is by example sohere's an example of how to solve theDaisy so to make things easier and morevisible when we recommend startingourself by putting the yellow Center ontop we will try to build our white edgesaround it one by one here one of thewhite edges the one in the back isalready solved that means there are onlythree we have to do ourselves from thisWatch at: 06:00 / 06:20view we are able to see three whiteedges here here and here this one hereon the left is only one move from beingsolved so solving it is verystraightforward generally our goal isthe goal for the easiest ones firstwhite edges are usually easy if they'reWatch at: 06:20 / 06:40sitting in this position or thisposition they can be solved using onlyone move the second sticker we can dohere is this one this one is not in ourdesired spot but if we turn the frontside this way it is one move away fromWatch at: 06:40 / 07:00being solved this one was solved in onlytwo moves and you can actually think ofit as an extension of the first case youhadthe first move transferred this whitesticker over here which turns it intothe first case we encountered at thispoint you will know how to solve thisWatch at: 07:00 / 07:20piece now it's time for the third edgewe have no more white stickers right infront of us but we can spin the cube inour hands to try to find one here it isit's sitting near the bottom of the cubethis one's a little trickier andrequires more moves to solve but we candefinitely do it the first step is toWatch at: 07:20 / 07:40turn the top so that the empty spacewhere you want the edge to go is on topof the edge you're looking at now thesecond thing to do is to move thissticker or this edge piece to eitherthis position or this position we can dothat by rotating the front you can moveWatch at: 07:40 / 08:00it this wayor you can move it that waylet's choose to move it this way at thispoint this case is really similar to thefirst one we solved which wastransferring the edge piece directly uphowever this is made a little morecomplicated because this piece isalready Y and we do not want to kick itWatch at: 08:00 / 08:20out of its position so in order to getpast this issue what we'll do is we'llmove this empty spot to where you wantto put the edge and then you can seethis is exactly the same as the firstedge we solved we just do one move andwe get it in at this point your Daisyshould all be solved let's do anotherWatch at: 08:20 / 08:40example of the Daisy here as you can seein this case we got lucky again whichcan happen pretty often in this stepthis piece is already adjacent to theyellow Center from this position we cansee the three white edges we want tosolve this one this one and this one nowWatch at: 08:40 / 09:00the piece here can be solved with onemove which is exactly what we've beendoing in the previous example what we'llfocus on next is this piece over here tosolve pieces like this turn the frontface which gives us a very familiar setup from here all we need to do is makeone move to finish it off the last pieceWatch at: 09:00 / 09:20is also one move offso we'll do that to complete the Daisyhere's one situation you may encounterwhile solving the Daisy this white rededge is all the way at the bottom whichis on the opposite side of the yellowcenter to solve this simply turn thisside twice to get the piece into placeWatch at: 09:20 / 09:40here's one last situation you may runinto while solving the Daisy you havethe pieces solved but there is somethingremaining like this white red edge overhere here you can try to solve it usingthat familiar technique but you maynotice that it kicks out this edge whichis already solved to remedy this weWatch at: 09:40 / 10:00recommend moving the empty spot overhere which will then allow you to putthe piece that you want inside tocomplete the Daisy now that we'vecovered how to solve the Daisy we willexplain how to complete the second substep which is solving the cross the ideais to align the other colour of each ofthe white edges with its correspondingWatch at: 10:00 / 10:20center by turning the bottom two layerstogether and then turning the front facetwice when the colours match let's gothrough an example all we must do hereis find a white edge and pay attentionto the other color on it in this caseit's green so what we'll do is rotatethe bottom two layers together until theWatch at: 10:20 / 10:40Greens match once we know that thegreens match we can turn the front facetwice in order to solve the cross pieceat this point you can spin the cube inyour hand in order to find a new piecethe first thing I noticed was thisorange piece and it's already near itsWatch at: 10:40 / 11:00corresponding orange center so there wasno need to rotate the bottom two layerstogether at this point once theseoranges match we can turn the front facetwice to solve the orange cross piecenow let's spin the cube one more time tofind this red white piece and now wewant to match the red with the redcentre so we can do that by turning theWatch at: 11:00 / 11:20bottom two layers together and once wehave that we can turn the front facetwice our last target is this edge whichis blue and white so at this point wewant to match the blue with the blueCenterwhich is on the opposite side of thecube so we can turn the bottom twoWatch at: 11:20 / 11:40layers together two times in order tomake the Blues match and at this pointwe can turn the front face twice inorder to complete the cross that's aboutit for the cross the Daisy is slightlyabstract and requires some thinking somake sure you practice that a bitWatch at: 11:40 / 12:00at this point you should be able tosolve the white cross on your cube thenext step is to solve all four firstlayer corners which are shown here allof these corners should have a whitesticker here's an example of a correctlysolved corner you can tell it's solvedbecause all three of its colors matchWatch at: 12:00 / 12:20the surrounding centers in this case thewhite part of the corner is near thewhite center the red part is near thered Center and the green is near thegreen Center this corner is notcorrectly solved even though the whitesmatch because the other colors do notcorrespond correctly now let's introduceWatch at: 12:20 / 12:40an algorithm which is a series of movesthat accomplishes a particular task onthe cube here it is ru R prime u primethis is actually the same sequence ofmoves we explored in the notationexercise for review the algorithm saysto turn the right face clockwise theWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00upper face clockwise the right facecounterclockwise and then the upper facecounterclockwise in this tutorial we'llcall this algorithm the righty althe righty Alec has many uses in thisWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20step we'll be using it to solve thefirst layer corners here's how it worksrepetitions of the righty alec willcause a corner piece to drop from thetop right into the bottom-right slot thepiece goes directly down our goal is toget the corner piece above where itshould go and then repeat the rightyalgún till it is solved in this exampleWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40after confirming that the red white andblue corner should belong between thered white and blue centers we shallrepeat the writing until the corner issolved let's try itWatch at: 13:40 / 14:00and here you can see that after threerepetitions the corner is solved nowlet's do a full example to begin makesure that your white cross is facingdownward the white side should be facingdown throughout the entire duration ofthis step here in this example weWatch at: 14:00 / 14:20already have a corner solved in the backwhich is pretty lucky our first step isto look on the top layer and find acorner with a white sticker we have onehere and it's white orange and blue nowwe check to see if the corner is on topof where it should go in this case it isif this corner was solved over here itWatch at: 14:20 / 14:40would match white blue orange white blueorange so once we confirm that thiscorner should go directly down we repeatthe righty out until the corner issolved make sure you check in betweenrepetitions to see if the corner isWatch at: 14:40 / 15:00solved if you overdo it you might haveto do more in order to solve the cornerin this case it took three repetitionsto solve the corner now let's check thetop layer to find another corner with awhite sticker there's one right here andit's white red and green unfortunatelyit's not on top of where it should go soWatch at: 15:00 / 15:20we have to rotate the bottom two layerstogether in order to put it on top ofwhere it should go this is very similarto when we were solving the cross solet's do itNo yes so at this point after rotatingthe bottom two layers together twice weWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40have this in position now white redgreen goes down into the white red greenspot once we confirm this we can repeatthe righty out until the corner piece issolvedWatch at: 15:40 / 16:00and here it is the last corner is whitegreen and orange and it belongs directlydown in this position so it's alreadyset up for repetitions of the righty elkthere's no need to position it withWatch at: 16:00 / 16:19turning the bottom two layers togetherso once this is set up we can repeatuntil the corner solved and at thispoint you can see that you have a firstlayer that's completely solved all theWatch at: 16:19 / 16:40white stickers match and you should havea ring of matching stickers around thisis when you know you're finished withthis step sometimes you may have acorner twisted in place like this or twocorners trapped in the bottom layer butswapped so that they are incorrect tosolve the corner trapped in place simplyWatch at: 16:40 / 17:00repeat the right eoq until it is solvedto interchange two pieces that areincorrectly trapped simply insert acorner piece into one of these positionsusing the righty al which should kickthe piece out and reinsert it in orderWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20to solve it correctly if you would likemore help on how to fix these please seeour troubleshooting videoonce the first layer corners are doneit's time to move on to the four secondlayer edges the four edges wereinterested in solving include the redblue the red green green orange andWatch at: 17:20 / 17:40orange blue none of these edges shouldhave a yellow sticker in this step we'llalso make use of the lefty version ofthe righty algae which is this l prime uprime L u this algorithm says to turnthe left face counterclockwise the upperWatch at: 17:40 / 18:00face counterclockwise the left faceclockwise and then the upper faceclockwise remember that an L moveinstructs us to turn the left faceclockwise as if we were looking directlyat it here is the L move one more timefor clarity let's call the al quie justWatch at: 18:00 / 18:20did the lefty owlike the corners in the step beforewe'll be moving edge pieces from the toplayer into their correct spots forexample we would like the green and rededge to appear between the green and redWatch at: 18:20 / 18:40centerpieces this is an example of acorrectly soft edge the two colors ofthe edge matched the center's that areadjacent to it in this step you will beusing combinations of the righty andLefty Alex to manipulate the edges andsolve them in between these Alex will bespinning the cube in our hands like thisin the form of spin right and spin leftWatch at: 18:40 / 19:00spin right follows the u-turn like thisand can be seen here spin left followsthe u Prime turn and goes in theopposite direction of the spin rightthis is a spin left to set up an edge tobe solved first look at the edge we wantWatch at: 19:00 / 19:20to match the sticker facing you in thiscase green with the center of the samecolor you can rotate the bottom twolayers together in order to match thesestickers so for here once we notice thatthis color is green we'll rotate thebottom two layers together and match itwith the Green Center there are two waysto solve an edge from the top layer youWatch at: 19:20 / 19:40can either move the edge to the right tosolve it or to the left to solve itfor this example because we match thegreen ones here we can then determinethat this edge which is green and redbelongs to the left in between the Greenand the red centers the other case weWatch at: 19:40 / 20:00can have is this piece right here and wecan illustrate it first by matching thegreens together and then you can seethat because this is green and orange itgoes between the green and orange piecesover here so this would be a case whereyou would want to move the edge to therightWatch at: 20:00 / 20:20to move an edge to the right do thissequence you righty I'll spin rightlefty out there's an easy way toremember this one first remember whichdirection the edge should go and movethe edge away from where it should gothen do the AL corresponding to theWatch at: 20:20 / 20:40direction you want the edge to go init's over here the righty I'll spin thecube in that direction so spin right andthen do the other out which is the leftyout and here you can see that this pieceWatch at: 20:40 / 21:00is solved to move an edge to the left dothis sequence you prime lefty alspin left righty ugh you can rememberthis using the same strategy outlinedbefore here's a walk through u primeWatch at: 21:00 / 21:20lefty al spin left righty out let'scheck out an examplelet's start by finding an edge that wecan solve in this example there's oneright herethe blue orange one we begin solving theWatch at: 21:20 / 21:40edge by first matching the stickerthat's facing us with the same colorCenter here in this example the Bluesare already matching which is alreadydone for us in very convenient next wedetermine where the edge should goshould it go to the right or should itgo to the left after looking at it wecan decide that it goes to the leftWatch at: 21:40 / 22:00since these blues match and the edgewould go here with the oranges matchingas well now that we know this we canapply the sequence of moves to solve theedge to the left it begins by turningthe edge away from where it should goapplying the lefty out spinning left andWatch at: 22:00 / 22:20then applying the right hand the nextedge we can see is the orange green onewe want to match the orange sticker onthis edge with the orange Center we cando this by rotating the bottom twolayers together this edge also goes leftso we can apply the same sequence toWatch at: 22:20 / 22:40solve it now we have the green red edgeand it's conveniently set up for us thisone also goes left and so we'll do thesame thing once again the fourth andlast edge is the red blue one we'll moveWatch at: 22:40 / 23:00the bottom two layers together to matchthe blue on the edge with the blueCenter this time the edge moves to theright to move the edge to the rightbegin by turning the edge away fromwhere it should go then apply the rightyI'll spin right and then apply the leftyWatch at: 23:00 / 23:20out at this point all of our secondlayer edges are solved after this stepis done correctly it'll look like 2/3 ofyour cube is doneit's time to work on the last layer thefirst objective here is to form a topWatch at: 23:20 / 23:40cross like thisthis step is different from the cross wesolved first in the beginning actuallyit's much easier here's an example of atop cross sometimes you can complete thefirst two layers and already have across on the top formed if this happensyou can skip this step completely asidefrom having the cross solved alreadyWatch at: 23:40 / 24:00there are only three different cases youcan encounter we distinguish these casesbased on the pattern of yellow edgesfacing up let's go over all three thefirst one is called the line we call itthe line because the yellow edges form aline with the yellow center to solve theline hold it horizontally here's how toWatch at: 24:00 / 24:20do itf rightio F prime essentially we turnthe front face clockwise perform therighty out and then undo the first turnwe made which is to do an F prime it'svery easy and as you can see the topcross is already solved the second caseWatch at: 24:20 / 24:40is called the angle we call it the anglebecause the yellow edges form a rightangle together with a yellow Center toset this one up hold it so that there'san edge on the right and an edge on thebottom here we're going to use a specialtype of F turn instead of turning theWatch at: 24:40 / 25:00front face on its own we're gonna turnthe front two faces together so thissequence begins with a small F which isthe front two faces together the rightyout and then small F prime which is acounterclockwise turn of the front twofaces together this is the same as theWatch at: 25:00 / 25:20previous sequence except we involve thefront two faces together instead of justone face the last case is called the dotwe come with the dot because it's a dotand there are no other edges that areyellow that are facing up to solve thedot perform the sequence for the lineWatch at: 25:20 / 25:40and then you'll notice that we have anangle so then we can perform thesequencefor the angle and this case is just inaddition of the two previous cases thisstep is generally pretty easy becauseWatch at: 25:40 / 26:00all it is is reacting to a small groupof patternsthe next step is to solve the positionsof the last layer corners let's firsttake a look at what this means here's acube with the last layer corner solvedyou can see that each color of thecorner pieces matches exactly what theWatch at: 26:00 / 26:20center's they are near these corners arecorrectly positioned now let's take alook at this cube the corners on thiscube are obviously not solved but theyare still correctly positioned toillustrate this red blue yellow corneris still in between the red blue andWatch at: 26:20 / 26:40yellow group of centers the corner is inthe correct positionit's just twisted the same is true ofthe other corners there are in thecorrect position just twisted this stepaims to correctly position all thecorners at this point we don't carewhether any particular corners twistedor not there are three cases that canWatch at: 26:40 / 27:00happen and you can adjust the cube byturning the bottom two layers togetherin order to get a better view todetermine which case you have let'sstart with the first one which is theeasiest if you take a look in all thecorners are already correctly positionedlike in the cube we have here do nothingWatch at: 27:00 / 27:20you've essentially skipped this step thesecond case is where you have to swaptwo corners in an adjacent fashion let'sdo an example here you'll notice thatthe red blue yellow and the blue orangeyellow corners are correctly positionedyou can turn the bottom two layerstogether to get a better view now let'sWatch at: 27:20 / 27:40take a look at the other two cornersespecially this green yellow orange oneyou'll notice that the green yelloworange is not in between the correctgroup of centers instead this cornerbelongs over here in the back betweenthe green orange yellow group of centersWatch at: 27:40 / 28:00and the corner in this current positionbelongs over here between the green redyellow centers at this point it shouldbe fairly clear that these two shouldswap so to summarize these two arecorrectly positioned and these twoshould swapWatch at: 28:00 / 28:20to swap these corners hold them so thatthey're both on the right the yellowcenter should be facing uponce you have this we can begin doingthe sequence of moves that swaps tocorners the sequence looks like thisperform the righty out three times thenWatch at: 28:20 / 28:40spin right and then perform the leftyout three times now let's do a check byWatch at: 28:40 / 29:00rotating the bottom two layers togetherto get a better view at this point thiscorner is solved and correctlypositioned this corner is correctlypositioned just twisted but that's okaythis corner is correctly positioned andWatch at: 29:00 / 29:20this corner is correctly positioned soat this point all of the corners arecorrectly positioned the other case iswhen you need to swap two cornersdiagonally here two of the corners arecorrectly positioned and two of them arenot the corners we need to swap ourdiagonal from each other to illustratewe can notice that this corner is in theWatch at: 29:20 / 29:40correct position and so is this onehowever this one's not in the correctposition and this one is not in thiscorrect position either from here we cantell that these two corners need to swapin a diagonal fashion which is differentfrom an adjacent swap to do this firstWatch at: 29:40 / 30:00perform the adjacent swap we learnedpreviously you can do this at any anglejust as long as the yellow Center isfacing up let's do this first partWatch at: 30:00 / 30:20after this you'll always encounter anadjacent swap over here you can tellthat these two corners are correctlypositioned and these two are not so thisis an adjacent swamp and we already knowhow to do thisWatch at: 30:20 / 30:40and then we can adjust the bottom twolayers and confirm that all the cornersare correctly positioned essentially toWatch at: 30:40 / 31:00do a diagonal swap we do two adjacentswaps to create a diagonal swapnow that all the last layer corners arecorrectly positioned it's time to twistthem so that all the yellow stickers arefacing in the same direction which is upso essentially you're going from this toWatch at: 31:00 / 31:20this where all the yellow corners arefacing up let's try two examples in thisexample we have four corners that needto be twisted to begin twisting themwe'll first flip the cube upside down sothat the white side is facing up ineffect the corners we need to twist areWatch at: 31:20 / 31:40now in the bottom layer to begin firstfind a corner that needs to be twistedin the bottom layer and spin the cube inyour hand so that it's on the bottomright here this is not an issue becauseall four corners need some form oftwisting after that's complete repeatthe righty out until the corner iscorrectly twisted you can tell if theWatch at: 31:40 / 32:00corners correctly twisted if the yellowsticker on it is facing down let's tryit on this cornerafter two repetitions of the righty alyou'll notice that this corner is facingdown and it's correctly twisted becauseWatch at: 32:00 / 32:20it matches the yellow pieces around itafterwards turn the bottom layer so thatanother corner that needs to be twistedis loaded into the bottom right spotthen repeat the righty algún till thecorner is correctly twistedWatch at: 32:20 / 32:39here we can check this corner has beencorrectly twisted repeat this processuntil all the corners are twistedcorrectly this step ends when all theWatch at: 32:39 / 33:00corners are twisted and the cube isturned right side up again in thisexample we'll need to only twist twocorners as two corners are alreadyWatch at: 33:00 / 33:20twisted correctly to begin flip the cubeupside down next confirm that the cornerthat you need to twist first is on thebottom right repeat the right yoga untilthe corner is correctly twisted herebecause these two corners who areWatch at: 33:20 / 33:39already correctly twisted we can skipthem and load this one into the correctspot by doing a double turn on thebottom layer once this is loaded intothe correct spot we can repeat the righteoq until the corner is correctlyWatch at: 33:39 / 34:00twisted at this point all the cornersshould be twisted correctly as a notesometimes all the corners will betwisted correctly after positioning themif this happens you can skip this stepnow let's move on to the last stepWatch at: 34:00 / 34:20solving the positions of the last layeredges is the last step of our method wecan begin by adjusting the corners totheir soft state by turning the bottomtwo layers together if you did theprevious steps correctly everythingWatch at: 34:20 / 34:40should be solved except for the edges onthe last layer there are two types ofcases that can happen one type is whenthere is one edge solved correctly andthe other type is where there are noedges solved correctly the first casewe'll deal with is the one where oneWatch at: 34:40 / 35:00edge is solved and three edges need tobe solved to begin solving this we mustfirst turn it so that the solved edge isin the front once we have that there isone more sequence that let's just finishthe cube for goodthis sequence goes like this righty outlefty out the righty out five times oneWatch at: 35:00 / 35:20two three four five and then the leftyout five times one two three four fiveWatch at: 35:20 / 35:40sometimes you may need to repeat thissequence twice in order to be solvedover here is an illustration righty outlefty out one two three four five oneWatch at: 35:40 / 36:00two three four five and if it's notsolved we can repeat the sequence againand it will be solvedrighty out lefty out one two three fourWatch at: 36:00 / 36:20five one two three four five and thecube is solved the other type of caseyou may encounter is the one where thereare no edges solvedto solve the cube from here simplyWatch at: 36:20 / 36:40perform the sequence of moves and thenspin the cube in your hand and do itagain to illustrate let's try it so I'lldo the sequence 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 atWatch at: 36:40 / 37:00this point I can
