# The 3x3x3 Example Solve Thread

The average movecount is higher but the average MCC (Trangium's movecount coefficient) is about the same. By my calculation, average movecount: 9.167, average MCC: 12.767. Mehta has OO L5EP-DR. If you decide to do this, let me know, and I have alg sheets I generated.

EDIT: My approach was slightly different, starting Mehta FB > 3QB though.
I don't think I'm ready for it yet but are the ones you have different from this?

Petrus:

L2 E2 R' F2 U L' D // Inefficient 222 for easy extension [7/7]
R U' R2 F2// 223 [4/11]
R U2 // Pair [2/13]
R U F U' F R U F' U' F // Inefficient EO for easy F2L [10/23]
U2 R U R U R // EZ F2L [6/29]
L U2 L2 U' L2 U' L2 U2 L // ZBLL [9/38]
38 STM

I think this is my first Petrus example solve.

APB:
y // Inspection
L2 E2 R' F2 U L' D // Inefficient 222 for easy extension [7/7]
R U' R2 F2// 223 [4/11]
R U2 // Pair [2/13]
R2 S R F R2 f' R // EOpair [7/20]
U2 R U' R' U R U R' // L3P [8/28]
M2 U M2 U2 M2 U M2 U2 // EPLL [8/36]
36 STM

APB works too...

Not for L5EP. I have some additional stuff I was working on trying to combine EO pair all into a single, algorithmic step.

Solving CPLine in DR and then doing a D2 to position it in DL actually opens up more options. I think I should implement this into my OH solves.
