A Mathematical Approach To Solving Rubik's Cube

The Rubiks Cube is a cube consisting of 6 sides with 9 individual pieces on each. The main objective when using one is to recreate it's original position, a solid color for each side, with out removing any piece from the cube. Though it is colorful and looks like a children's toy, there have been many championships for it's completion. It amused fiveyear- olds yet inspired mathematicians. It's unique design was made by an engineer named Erno Rubik, a socialist bureaucrat who lived in Budapest, Hungary. He built the simple toy in his mother's apartment and did not know of the 500 million people who were going to become overly perplexed over it. His first idea of the cube came in the Spring of 1974.

What inspired Erno was the popular puzzle before his called the 15 Puzzle. Invented in the late 1870's, this puzzle consisted of 15 consecutively numbered, flat squares that can be slid around inside a square frame. Sam Loyd created this two dimensional version of the Rubiks Cube. The puzzle was originally called the Magic Cube, or Buvuos Kocka in Hungarian. It was later renamed in honor of it's creator to the Rubiks Cube. Many different cube variations have been made, but the one discussed here is called the standard 3x3x3. It contains 26 little blocks of plastic. The Rubiks Cube has been a successful product for many years. Though created without great intentions, people have spent millions of dollars on it. Math classes to this day study the complexity of the Cube. Erno, the creator of the cube, became an overly rich man from his ingenious creation.
