_w' on a 5x5x5 Rubik's Cube

Postby evans-rubix08912 » Mon Jan 16, 2012 5:36 pm

If a notation with a side letter is followed by a "w," what exactly does it mean, in terms of layers being moved, for a 5x5x5 Rubik's cube. I inquire about this as I am going to scramble one properly later on.

Thanks in Advance.

I don't use that notation. Most people use R, r, and Rr to denote a clockwise rotation of the outer, inner and both right hand side wedges respectively. I suspect Rw means the same as r, but don't quote me on it - it could mean Rr instead!
Please take off topic discussion off this forum. Thanks.

Rw is the same as Rr, which means both inner and outer slices (Not the middle slice). On a 3x3x3 though, Rw would be the middle and outer slice.
lol, here to help ^_~
