3. Step 1: Know Your Cube

Getting to know the Rubik's Cube is the first step anyone should take when trying to solve it. You should take time to learn the individual parts of the cube and the fact that a different letter represents each side of the cube. The Rubik's Cube parts consist of three pieces; the edge pieces are the pieces that have two colors. There are twelve of them in the middle rows. Corner pieces are the pieces with three colors, and there are eight of them. Centerpieces are those with a single color in the middle on each side. These aren't supposed to move and should represent their individual colors.
