Hi

Well I just wanted to know how many different positions there are on the last layer of the 3x3 and how you can calculate this. I tried on my own with this:

4! * 4! * 3^4 2^4 /12 = 7 776

(corner perm)*(edge perm)*(corner orientation)*(edge orientation) / (parity)

But on two other sites it said 3916 or 1212 positions. So which number is correct?
