Rubik’s  Cube  Beginners  Solution  
Step  1:  White  Cross  

Step  2:  Bottom  Layer  (White)  Corners  

Surrounding  the  yellow  center  with  the  white  
edges  first  may  help.  Remember  the  white  edges  
must  line  up  with  their  non-­‐white  center  

First  rotate  the  cube  so  that  the  yellow  side  faces  up.  
Rotate  the  top  (yellow)  layer  until  a  
white  corner  above  its  “slot”  
R U R’ U’
Repeat  the  algorithm  until  the  corner  is  solved    


Step  3:  Middle  Layer  Edges  



Step  4:  Yellow  Cross  

These  are  the  3  cases  you  could  have  
on  the  yellow  side  besides  a  finished  
yellow  cross.  If  you  have  that,  skip  
this  step.  
F (R U R’ U’) F’
Do  the  algorithm  repeatedly  while  
holding  the  cube  like  shown  in  the  

Rotate  the  top  (yellow)  layer  until  the  
NON-­‐yellow  edge  is  lined  up  with  it’s  
 R’ U’ R’ U’ R’ (U R U R)

Then  do  one  of  the  algorithms  
depending  on  where  the  edge  needs  to  
go  (note  the  rather  EPIC  arrows)    


R U R U R (U’ R’ U’ R’)

Notice  that  the  corner  algorithm  from  
step  2  is  right  in  the  middle  of  this  
algorithm!  Easy  memorization  :D  


If  there  aren’t  any  yellow  edges  in  the  top  layer,  use  one  of  
the  algorithms  to  insert  a  yellow  edge  where  a  non-­‐yellow  
  is  to  “pop”  it  out.    

Step  6:  Last  Layer  Corners    
In  this  step  we’re  getting  corners  in  their  
correct  spots  that  means  they  don’t  have  to  
be  correctly  flipped  (like  in  the  picture.)  Put  
a  correct  corner  in  the  spot  shown  and  do:    
(U R U’ L’) (U R’ U’ L)
You  might  have  to  do  it  twice  
To  help  with  memorization:  
The  red  letters  are  moves  away  from  you  
and  the  green  letters  are  moves  towards  you  


Step  5:  Last  Layer  Edges  
Rotate  the  upper  (yellow)  
layer  until  you  line  up  two  
adjacent  edges  with  their  

Then  hold  the  cube  so  that  
one  is  in  the  back  face  and  
one  in  the  right  face.  

Then  do  the  algorithm:  
U R’ U R U2 R’
If  you  don’t  have  two  adjacent  edges  just  hold  the  cube  
however  you  want  and  do  the  algorithm.  You  should  end  
up  with  two  adjacent  edges.  Then  solve  it  normally.  

Links  and  References  
Find  “Cube  Club”  on  FaceBook  and  “Like”  it  so  you  can  get  
updates,  cool  links,  ect.  And…Cube  Clube  meets  every  
Tuesday  and  Thursday  at  lunch  in  the  chorus  room.  
Here’s  the  references  I  used  for  this  method:  



Step  7:  Finishing  the  Cube!!!!  

Now  turn  the  cube  so  that  the  white  side  is  
your  up  face.  We  will  now  flip  all  of  the  yellow  
layer  corners  into  their  correct  
positions/orientations.  And  we  get  to  use  the  
easy  algorithm  we  learned  in  step  2!  :D  

R U R’ U’

1.  Rotate  the  yellow  layer  (with  D,  D’,  or  D2)  
until  an  unsolved  corner  is  in  the  circled  
2.  Do  (R  U  R’  U’)  until  the  corner  is  solved  
3.  Repeat  1  &  2  until  the  cube  is…SOLVED!!!!  

This  is  the  step  where  it  seems  like  you’re  
messing  up  everything  you  just  did  but  it  all  
comes  back  together  in  the  end  so  yea…
