  • Rubiks Cube

  • Rubik's Cube is a 3-D combination puzzle invented in 1974 by

    Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ern Rubik.

    It took well over a month for Erno to work out the solution to his


    The 3x3x3 Rubik's cube contain:

    *Twenty-six unique miniature cubes.

    *Six central pieces which show one colored face{ center does not


    *Twelve edge pieces which show two colored faces.

    *Eight corner pieces which show three colored faces.

    Ern Rubik.

  • Mathematics:

    There are 8! (40,320) ways to arrange the corner cubes

    There are 12!/2 (239,500,800) ways to arrange the edges.

    the total number of possible Cube permutations is

    43,252,003,274,489,856,000 which is approximately 43 quintillion.


    In Rubik's cubers' parlance, a memorised sequence of moves that has a

    desired effect on the cube is called an algorithm.

    For example : F R r R B D

  • You can solve it by using hands or feet.

    Most difficult case of solving it is called blindfold case.
