Hi, my name is Todd with Expert Village and today I'm going to show you how to solve a Rubik's Cube. The third layer. In order to work on the third layer, we have to flip the cube over. So now what was the bottom, what was down is now up and what was up is now down. Now there are several algorithms in order to solve this layer. In order to tell which algorithm you'll want to use, you have to look at the pattern of the color of this side. This side is the yellow side. We have red, green, white, blue and orange. This is the last color. So looking at the pattern of yellow will tell you what algorithm you want to do. Any time you see this small L, you want to put it in the top left corner like so. And when it's here, you do this algorithm. Front, clockwise, top, clockwise, right, clockwise, top, counter clockwise, right, counter clockwise, front counter clockwise. So basically what you did is you turned this piece, this piece and this piece in the same direction and then the top back before you turned the sides. That's how we changed the pattern on the top without changing anything on the sides. This next pattern is another algorithm that you'll need to know.
