The Rubik's Cube is a puzzle invented by Erno Rubik in 1979. (Originally however, it was called the Magic Cube) It currently is the worlds No.1 worlds best selling puzzle/toy with over three hundred million (300, 000, 000+) Rubik's Cubes being sold worldwide by 2005.( That means that one in twenty people own a rubik's cube!!).
A classic 3x3 Rubik's Cube has 6 sides with 9 stickers on each side each side being a different colour. The colours that are tradtionally on a Rubik's Cube are white, red, blue, orange, green, and yellow and the objective of the puzzle is to make all the sides one matching colour. An in build mechanism in the Rubik's Cube makes each row and column movable to that the player may solve the cube.
There are exactly 43, 252, 003, 274, 489, 856, 000 possibilities that a Rubik's cube may have which is about forty-three quintillion or forty-three trillion. Note, - That is enough possiblites to cover the earth 275 times or have a insanely huge tower that would take 261 light years to reach the end of.
The Rubik's Cube is a breakthrough in toys and puzzles but takes hundreds of hours to master. I rate the Rubik's Cube with a 43, 252, 003, 274, 489, 856, 000/10 because of its breakthrough and impact it has made in this world.
(Just kidding I rate it with a 10/10)
