This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science
related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should
explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments
should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .

Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.

Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Yeah I do those moves on my rubik's cube, but I didn't know they were called devil's algorithm.
It is a nice way to make an observer wonder that "what just happened",

Yeah I know that algo ..I usually do it on the last layer..(R,D,R,D..) If I am not mistaken.. But thats not the devil's algorithm..the devil's algorithm doesn't depend on an initial configuration ..I doubt anyone could actually execute a devil's algorithm unless its on a virtual cube on a super fast computer since the minimum number of times you have to repeat the algo is 34,326,986,725,785,600

TopNewestI want to introduce myself to cfop method . Can someone suggest better site for this?

Algorithms too long. I prefer the rubik's cube official website solution

i use cfop.. am sub 20.. single best is 13.32 (non lucky). trying to improve. :)

easy find cfop method if you want to speed up the time to solve it

Yup, i too solved it in a go.... Amazing.

If you are an avid rubiks cube fan, read this article Cube.

Have you heard of devil's algorithms,a set of moves that when repeated a number of times will return a solved cube.. Its really cool.

The devil's algo is actually the shortest algos ever made and is quite memorizable//

Manish, this website is just amazing. I solved the rubiks cube in one go after reading the algoritm though it took me a bit of time. Thank you.
