Hello, everybody!

First of all, I'd just like to point out that I'm from Sweden, so I'm sorry about my English.

Now that we've got that out of the way, we can begin. As a school project I'm doing the "Devising an Algorithm for Solving Rubik's Cube" idea (http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... p025.shtml). I thought it was interesting so I gave it a shot. I began at the very beginning, which is getting to know the Rubik's cube. Here I learned all about the different notations, e.g. F is the front side, R is right side and so on. After that I looked up two different ways of solving the Rubik's cube on the Internet. I did both solutions 10 times each. I also wrote plenty about mathematics behind the Rubik's cube, and I'm planning on writting more about that.

At this point I have a good understanding about the whole cube and I can solve it in about three minutes. However, when I began doing the "devising an algorithm" part I got stuck. Immediately. I've tried the three different sets of moves and they all work but to devise and algorithm with only these three sets requires a lot of work, which I am willing to put in, but I just can't get anywhere.

Anyway, so here I am, stuck at this part. Any help I can get is appreciated.

Thank you!
