How to Solve a 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube

Posted on

There are several ways to solve a 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube, but I will explain the method most commonly used by Rubik’s Cube fans, namely the Layer-by-Layer (LBL) method.

How to Solve a 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube

Step 1: Finishing the white side

  1. Find and place all the white pieces in a plus (+) pattern in the center of the cube.
  2. Match the pieces to the color of the sides that match. Then place the piece in the right position so that the white side of the cube forms.

Step 2: Finishing the middle layer

  1. Find pieces with a yellow side color that matches the side color in the middle layer.
  2. Then place the piece in the right position by making the appropriate moves.

Step 3: Finishing the yellow side (top layer)

  1. Place all the yellow pieces on the top side of the cube.
  2. Find a suitable pattern for the top side. There are several commonly used patterns such as T-shape, L-shape, or dot (dot).
  3. In the right position, perform a certain algorithm to form the desired pattern.

Step 4: Finishing the last layer (last layer)

  1. Once the top side pattern is formed, find the right position to rotate the piece with the mismatched color on the bottom side of the cube.
  2. Once all the pieces with the matching color are on the top side, rotate the cube using the correct algorithm to correct the positions of the pieces that don’t match.

Step 5: Correcting the orientation (Orientation)

  1. Once all the pieces are placed correctly, check the position of the colors on the sides of the cube.
  2. If there are colors that still don’t match, use the right algorithm to fix them.
  3. This process does take a fair amount of time and practice, but with patience and a strong will, anyone can learn it and solve the 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube.
  4. Good luck!
