Learn the cube

## 1st Step: Position yellow corners correctly

While holding your Rubik’s Cube as shown above, look at the top face. Place the 2 correct corners in the back A, B or diagonally A, D or B, C across from each other.

If corners A and B are in the right place then to switch C and D, do the sequence below:

If you need to switch diagonal corners like B and C or D and A, then do the sequence once. Then, orient the Cube so the 2 correct corners are in the back and do the sequence again.

## 2nd Step: Position yellow edges correctly

Here you need to orientate the edges.

If one edge is correct but the other 3 edges aren't follow by this image and look at the algorithms below.

If 4 edges are not correct, you are going to have to do the algorithms twice. Do any sequence below and go to the instructions for the 1 edge correct. Also follow this image below.

To cycle EFG Counter-Clockwise or EFGH Counter-Clockwise:

## Congratulations!

You have solved the cube. If you want to solve the cube without looking at the guide, memorize the algorithms. The way I memorize is doing the move a bunch of times. Then I put it into my brain. So again, Congratulations!
