The following is one of many solutions to the Rubik's Cube.
This solution was developed by [[w:David Singmaster|David Singmaster]], an [[English]] [[w:mathematician|mathematician]].
These six moves (U D L R F B), and any sequence of moves, do not move the position of the 6 center pieces. (They ''rotate'' the center pieces. This solution assumes that the rotation of these center pieces is unimportant, but see below for a method of rotating the center faces without affecting the rest of the cube.)

== Step 1: Top edge pieces ==
The cube is assumed to be scrambled like crazy. The first thing to do is to choose a color and the thing, say white (it tends to stand out from the other colors on the cube)
It's also a very good idea to always do a specific color first, since you will remember which colors are adjacent, which speeds things up considerably.
The first step is to form a cross on the top face of the cube.
Orient the cube so that the white center piece is on top.
The aim is to get the correct pieces in the UL, UB, UR and UF
So, some of the following moves are needed: (be sure to do those in the first step first).
* If a white-other color (OC) piece is on the U face:
