Why You Can’t Solve the Rubik’s Cube, and How You can Learn!

There are a lot of people who cannot solve the Rubik’s Cube. There are a lot of people who can. The main reason that people cannot is that they do not understand how the cube works, and they are not using the right strategy. To solve the cube, you must understand the cube.

First, you need to become familiar with the pieces. The first piece is the center piece, there are six on each cube, in the center of each side. This piece can twist and turn, but it will always be in the same spot, relative to the other center pieces, so do not try to move this one, try to move the others to line up with this one. The next piece is the corner piece. There are eight on each cube, and they are in each corner. Some people try to make a color on the corner go to an edge, but this is impossible because a corner piece cannot go in an edge piece slot. These will always be in a corner and any one of them can be in any corner. The last type of piece is the edge piece. There are twelve of these on each cube. They are in between each of the corner pieces and can move to any other edge on the cube.

There is only one piece that can correctly go in each slot, and only one possible solved configuration. This is because one piece is not just one color, it can be two or three colors, which all have to be in the correct spot at the same time in order for the cube to be solved. The last thing that people do wrong is try to solve each side one at a time. One side can appear to be solved, but white and blue edge piece can be where the white and red edge piece should be, so the red and blue sides will not be solvable until these pieces are switched, so if one side is all one color, the other colors on the pieces could be in the totally wrong spot, and that is why it is so hard to solve two sides at once.

What I am trying to say is that when one side is solved, all of the pieces touching that side should look the same as when the entire cube is solved. My last piece of advice is that the correct way to do it is to try and solve it by the layer. What I mean by this is to solve it so that while solving one side, another side is also being solved at once.

I really hope this helped any of you out there who are still stumped on the World’s best selling puzzle and If you still do not understand, there is a full tutorial on Rubik’s.com. Good luck!
