# What is the notation of cube?

## What is the notation of cube?

Cubers use letter notations in order to represent the algorithms to solve the cube. These universal notations allow cubers to speak in the same language thereby creating tutorials and multiple methodologies for solving the cube. Cubers use letters to describe the direction in which to spin the cube.

Andrej Karpathy, Ph. (more commonly known as badmephisto) is a Canadian cuber famous for his CFOP tutorial videos on YouTube and later other guides on his website. Since 2008, other cubers who have since become influential in the community learned to cube through his YouTube tutorials.

What is Z in cube notation?

The letters X, Y and Z are used to signify cube rotations. X signifies rotating the cube in the R direction. Y signifies the rotation of the cube in the U direction. Z signifies the rotation of the cube on the F direction .

### What is D in Rubik’s Cube 2×2?

L (left): the left face. U (up): the upper face. D (down): the face opposite to the upper face.

### What does U2 mean in Rubik’s Cube?

Note: Double moves such as U2 can be done clockwise or counterclockwise. The direction of the move can be specified by using U2 and U2′ (to show finger tricks), but this is not always used.

What is RW in Rubik’s Cube?

“Rw” is a turn of the right two layers; that is to say, it is the same thing as L x. Pieces of the cube can be referred to using the F, B, U, D, L and R letters.

## What is B2 in Rubik’s Cube?

The direction of a given rotation is denoted by the presence or absence of a prime (‘) symbol. R’, L’, U’, D’, F’, or B’ means to turn the corresponding face 90 degrees counterclockwise. R2, L2, U2, D2, F2, or B2 means to turn the corresponding face 180 degrees.

## What does LW mean in cubing?

When you see ‘Rw’ this indicates to move both of the right most layers in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise rotations. When you see ‘Lw’ this indicates to move both of the left most layers in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise rotations.

How much does it cost to use badmephisto?

For example, any of these cubes will be much better than anything you can buy in store and only cost about \$12. Q: Cool, then what? A: Download my iPhone/Android app called “badmephisto”, which gives a nice on-the-go cheat sheet for the algorithms you will need to remember.

### Why do we use letters in the Rubik’s cube notation?

We use letters to describe a rotation on the cube. Learn to read the Rubik’s Cube Notation and you’ll be able to perform all algorithms you see in the solution tutorials.

### How many intuitive letters do you need to solve the cube?

The good news is that learning onlyif six intuitive letters is sufficient to solve the cube but if you are a speedcuber you should learn the advanced notation which you can access from this page.

How do I solve the front slot of my cube?

Set up your cube using (L’ U’ L U2 R L’ U’ R’ L). Now to solve the front slot you may be tempted to right away just do R U R’. On the other hand, if you were multi-slotting, you would instead do an L’ first, then do R U R’, and then undo the L’ with an L. See what happened?
