Abstract [en]

This study analyzed and compared four different methods of solving a Rubik’s Cube. Those four methods being the method on Rubik’s official website, the CFOP method, the Roux method and the ZZ method. The factors that were considered were the number of moves each method requires for solving a Rubik’s Cube, how many algorithms they require as well as how concrete or intuitive they are.

Our conclusion is that the CFOP, Roux, and ZZ method are fairly equivalent when it comes to move span, but CFOP has the lowest average number of moves used to solve a Rubik’s Cube. CFOP has more concrete algorithms and cases while both Roux and ZZ are more intuitive, ZZ uses fewer types of moves than Roux however.

The solution on Rubik’s official website does not compare, at its best it uses as many moves as the others do at their worst. It is however concrete and uses few algorithms for each part.
