# How to solve a Rubik's cube 5х5 - Step 1

Before solving a Rubik's cube 4x4, learn how to solve the classic cube 3x3, because the Assembly of the cube 5x5 consists of the same algorithms as the 3x3, but the addition of a few new formulas

**Step 1.**

In the beginning of this step the cube should be completely undone.

In the end of this step You should solve all centers (by 9 pieces of the same color)

Unlike the cube 4x4, all centers in this cube are fixed like in the cube 3x3 that facilities the solution a lot. To carry out this step, You need to move the central pieces (far and close ones) between each other. Place the necessary pieces against each other and carry out the formula.

**Rearrangement of close pieces**

It should be noted that the last action in this algorithm is not necessary. I added it for the visualization to place the piece in the starting position but for the acceleration of solution you can omit this action.

**Rearrangement of far pieces**

It should be noted that the last 2 actions in this algorithm are not necessary. I added them for the visualization to place the pieces in the starting positions but for the acceleration of solution you can omit this action.
