# Can you solve the rubik's cube ?

I got one today and it is so complicated , how long should I use it to solve it ?

Yeah, learn the algorithms, after a while, you’ve programmed yourself, and its quite easy.

After that, there’s always RUBIX REVENGE.

Well, I think most people would say that it’s a game where you can take as long as you like. It probably helps you figure it out better if you carefully take time in choosing the way you turn it. Although the record (I think) is just over one minute. Most people see it as a race against time or another player, even though it’s a “no-skills-needed” type game. So what do you think? Did they build this game to challenge the human mind to see how quick they can think? Or did they make it to entertain people? I think people have long since forgotten the answer to that, don’t you? =oD

always start with the green side because my dad does that and he can solve it in 5 min

it has something to with algorithims (I cant spell it tho) :D

I answered this earlier today:

The first mistake almost everyone makes is that they try to solve one side, and then move on. Don’t even bother trying that; it won’t work. The second mistake almost everyone makes is taking stickers off when they can’t solve it. If you’re going to cheat, at least cheat by disassembling the cube itself. (Twist one side 45 degrees and pull up on one of the twisted side’s edge pieces - the pieces showing exactly two colors.) This way your stickers won’t fall off, and you’ll get to see how the internal mechanics of the cube work.

You really can’t solve permutation puzzles by intuition or by just planning ahead. You might be able to solve some of the puzzle without knowing tricks, but you’ll eventually come to a point where your incomplete understanding of what a move will do prevents you from solving part of the puzzle without mixing up the rest. This is where algorithms come in.

Algorithms are sequences of moves that you remember because they have a predicable effect: flipping the orientation or swapping the position of certain pieces, while only affecting other pieces in known ways. By far the coolest and most instructive way to learn to solve a Rubik’s Cube is by teaching yourself. Here you’re going to be discovering and memorizing your own algorithms, mostly through trial and error. If you’re going this rout, here’s a tip: The middle pieces don’t move. Because of this you can look at the two colors of an edge piece or the three colors of a corner piece and know where they’ll have to ultimately end up.

Most people just want to be taught how to solve the cube. If you’re not up for making your own method, there are plenty of solutions that others have been kind enough to share. I think the best method for a beginner is the Petrus Method, by Lars Petrus. The Petrus method is nice because the first few steps are intuitive - requiring no memorization. From that point on there are fewer algorithms to memorize than you find in most solutions, although you can learn more if you want to solve the cube faster. Another big advantage of learning the Petrus Method is that he’s made a great online tutorial, including a java simulation of the cube demonstrating each step. You can find his website here:

If you practice the Petrus method, you should have no problem solving the cube in under a minute. Have fun!

It’s possible to solve it. It has to do with math or something. It takes forever…I’ve had mine nearly a year and haven’t done it yet. My old math teacher can solve one in 2 minutes.

I’ve solved it many times in under 2 minutes I dont memorize all the algorithms but I look at them while solving it go on youtube and search “how to solve rubiks cube” and pogboat or pogoboat will have 2 videos on how to solve it it helped me ALOOOt

doode I fail to do one and if I did I would probably get it accidently but I’ve heard people taking months to do one

Yeah I can solve it in 4 minutes. There are lots of steps to it though.

I’ve never solved one, but I normally give up after like 5 minutes.

I solved a rubix cube srry dude it takes a lot of steps

yep, but it takes me about 5 hours lmao. I fail XD
