# How to solve a Rubik's Cube - Step 6 - Finishing the Last Layer

So when you're done with step five , you have a cube looking like this , the entire yellow side is done and all you have left to figure out are all of these side pieces .

You want to make them all look right .

So what you do is first you look for a pair of headlights by headlights .

I mean , I have one right here .

You have two colors that are the same right here and either the same color in here or a different color .

All that matters is that these two colors are the same .

So you look around , you don't see any , you see one , what you do is you place that , that pair of headlights in the back and you apply this algorithm .

This algorithm is a bit longer , but once you have it memorized , you're basically done solving .

So here it is our prime F R , prime B two R F prime , our prime B two R two .

When you're done , you should have a cube that has all of these corners in their right spots .

All you have to do is fix these edges .

Most of the time you're gonna come across a case like this , in this case , you're looking for those headlights with two of the same color on the sides , but you can't find any , they're all different .

What you do is you hold the cube in any random position and apply the algorithm R prime Fr prime B two RF prime R prime B two R two .

When you're done , you're gonna look around and you're gonna find a pair of headlights .

In this case , the one in the middle is still the same color .

That doesn't matter as long as these two are the same color .

So once again , you take those headlights turn them so they're in the back and apply the algorithm .

Now you just have a cube where you have to flip this .

So here we have the final part of solving the three by three by three , Rubik's cube .

So when you're at this section , you're gonna have all of these top corners done for you .

But these edges are not gonna be done either , you're gonna have three edges not done with one already done for you or all of them are not gonna be done .

What you do is you put the edge that's already fully completed in the back and you apply this algorithm F two .

Then at this part , you choose , you have the green side in front of you and here's the green piece .

So you bring the green piece over to where it should be .

Then you go R prime L F two RL prime , then you bring the green side back over and F two .

And that solved your Rubik's cube for you .

So I'm just gonna go ahead and take you through this case one more time .

So you have three unmatched , the backside is already lined up .

So you go F two this time instead of this side coming over , this is the orange side , you see the orange piece in the middle here .

So you bring the orange over R prime L F two RL prime , you bring those oranges back over F two and it's salt .

So here is the last case , you have all four of these edge pieces unsolved .

All you do , you hold the cube in any position you want as long as this is on the top and you apply the algorithm just either way .

So I did that way that solved me one side .

Now I just have these three corners to line up and F two , orange comes over to the orange side , R prime LF two RL prime , then the orange comes back over and F two .

And that solved your entire Rubik's cube for you .

So that basically finished up my tutorial on how to solve the three by three by three Rubik's cube .

Um Don't forget to like comment or subscribe to my channel .

Um I'm gonna continue making Rubik's cube videos on how to solve other ones cool patterns , anything like that .

So just comment if you have any ideas for me and I really appreciate it .

Ok , see you guys later .
