## How to Solve a 5x5x5 Rubik’s Cube – Part 4 – Parity Errors May 4, 2012

Looking to see how to solve the bigger Cubes as a 3×3? Click THIS LINK to see my Video Explaining it! www.youtube.com Unsure of how to solve a 3×3 Rubik’s Cube? Check out my 3×3 Tutorial: www.youtube.com Want to see a faster way to solve the case at 6:30? Check out this video and GO TO TIME POINT 13:20 www.youtube.com Goes over the 3 main types of parity errors you will encounter while pairing edge pieces on the 5×5 cube, the single edge flip, the edge swap, and checkerboard patterns. You will only need to know two algorithms in order to correct the parity errors, and you should already know the first one since it is also used to solve the 4×4 parity error. The first parity case I go over is one where we have one middle edge piece which is flipped. The algorithm I give you does not actually flip that single middle edge piece alone, but flips the two outer edge pieces over so they are the same orientation as the middle piece. The algorithm we use to correct this is the same algorithm we used in the 4×4 Tutorial for fixing the PLL parity error which occurred when solving the top cross. It is: (Rr)2 B2 U2 (Ll) U2 (Rr)’ U2 (Rr) U2 F2 (Rr) F2 (Ll)’ B2 (Rr)2 ________________________________________ The second type of parity case is one where we have two outer/wing edge pieces which have switched places. That algorithm we will be using is: (Ll)’ U2 (Ll)’ U2 F2 (Ll)’ F2 (Rr) U2 (Rr)’ U2 (Ll)2 ________________________________________ The third type of parity error is basically **…**
