# Thread: chances of this happening

1. ## chances of this happening

i recently started using 2 look oll and while solving for yellow cross it solved yellow side and oriented my corner and there was a clockwise edge cycle

fml-it was on my keychain cube so no pb

my question is in numbers what are the chances of this happening?

3. If you're talking about just OLL it's because it's one of the cases....and 3 cycle comes up 1/x of the time..so multiply them together.

4. sry, I had misread it. I thought you said solved the cross, then corners, then got a U-perm. Nothing special there. My bad. Still nothing very special with a corner skip, the fact that you also got a u-perm is irrelevant.

I think the corner skip is 1/27

5. to clear all the confusion up once i finished f2l it gave me the L or the bar, i dont remember then i was solving it to get it to 1 of the 7 cases (sune headlights, opposite cross, double sune etc.) but while doing so it oriented my corners and solved the yellow side so essemtially i got an oll skip and an easy pll (hope this clears up any confusion)

6. I believe your LL was: F R U R' U' F' and R2 U R U R' U' R' U' R' U R'

Not too lucky, but fairly easy

7. 1/27 * 1/18 = 1/486 for that combination. But like I said, the U-perm doesn't really matter. You could have got the other U-perm or any other easy PLL or even a PLL skip.

Uh, no? (too short)

Edit: Depends on what he's asking for. If he's asking for the probability of the corner skip, then the U perm doesn't matter, but if he's asking for the probability of getting that entire LL combination, then yes it does matter.

Uh, no what?

I'm saying that there's nothing particularly special about a U-perm other than it being one of the easier PLLs. It's like saying "omg I got a sune+T-perm... what are the chances of that!!?"

Really not special at all, that's all I'm saying.

okay, I see you're edit. Yes I'm saying there's nothing special about a U-perm. But the probability given was for that specific combo.

10. Well, the case is actually a T, with headlights.
F R U R' U' F' it solves OLL...
You can get back to it by dong
the opposite edge cycle, y2, then f R U R' U' f' then another y2...
Then solve it by doing your 2look OLL (with the head of the "T" on the right) and an edge cycle... It should work...
