The '''Rubik's cube''' (also known as the '''3x3x3 cube''', and normally referred to in the cubing community as the '''3x3x3''' or '''3x3''') is a twistable [[puzzle]] in the shape of a cube that is cut two times along each of three axes. It is said to be the best-selling toy in history, with well over 300 million cubes sold, and because of this popularity it is the most commonly practiced cube in [[speedsolving]]. The most popular brand is [[Rubik's Brand Cube]], which was first patented by [[Erno Rubik]] in 1975, and which began being produced on a wide scale in the early 1980s. From around 2007 the cubing community has seen the development of speedcubes made in China that have made significant improvements on Rubik's design.
This puzzle has 6 fixed [[center]]s, 12 [[edge]]s, and 8 [[corner]]s, and a total of 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 (or =~ 4.3 x 10^19) positions. It has been proven that every position can be solved in 20 or fewer moves (https://cube20.org/).
