# 8 steps, layer by layer solution to the Rubik's Cube

## An overview

a scrambled Rubik's Cube

In this visual guide on how to solve a Rubix Cube, written by the Singapore Rubik's Cube Champion, we will be using a method known as the layer-by-layer method. A Rubix Cube contains 3 layers and we will be solving them 1 by 1.

Step 1-3 are meant to solve the first layer of the Rubix Cube

Step 4 solves the middle layer of the Rubix Cube

Step 5-8 solves the last layer of the Rubix Cube

# Step 1

A 'flower' pattern - surround the yellow center with white edges

# This is the pre-cross step.

Don't worry about the terminology if you can't understand them, I will explain them before we begin solving the Rubik's Cube.

Go to step 1

# Step 2

A white cross- white edges are connected to the white center, forming a cross. notice that the color at the side are matching as well

# We will move the white edges so that they connect with the white center, forming a cross at the top of the Rubik's Cube.

Note that the side of the white cross have matching colors as well.

Go to step 2

# Step 3

First layer done - corners have been inserted into the right place to form one layer of the Rubik's Cube

# Insert corners into the right places to form the very first layer of the Rubik's Cube

note that the sides have a mini T on them

Go to step 3

# Step 4

2 layers have been completed

Go to step 4

# Step 5

A yellow cross have been formed at the top of the Rubik's Cube

So beautiful!

Go to step 5

# Step 6

The sides of the top layer cross are now done

Go to step 6

# Step 7

Last 4 corners in their correct place

Go to step 7

# Step 8

A solved Rubik's Cube
