Note: In the standard algorithm set D denotes a down face one quarter clockwise rotation (i.e. 90 degrees), D' denotes a down face one quarter anti-clockwise rotation and D2 a down face one half rotation (i.e. 180 degrees).

Note: In the graphic set each graphic represents a one quarter rotation (i.e. 90 degrees) of the face in the direction of the arrow and IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE that the arrows on the back graphics appear to be incorrect, but they represent the rotation direction viewed from the front.

IMPORTANT: Before starting any algorithm (sequence) in the solution, the face you choose as your top face must always be held on top and the specified front face (the dark grey face on the graphics) held facing toward you until the algorithm is completed.


If you understand the terms and instructions we are using then you are ready to get started.
