8 steps, layer by layer solution to the 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
A 'flower' pattern - surround the yellow center with white edges
First, you will surround the yellow centers with the white edges. This will form what looks like a 'white lily'.
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.
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
First layer done - corners have been inserted into the right place to form one layer of the Rubik's Cube
2 layers have been completed
A yellow cross have been formed at the top of the Rubik's Cube
The sides of the top layer cross are now done
Last 4 corners in their correct place
