# 5×5 Rubik’s Cube – Edge Pairing Parity Error Solution (2019)

In this video, I’m going to show you how to solve this parity error that you may run into when solving edge pieces on a 5×5 Rubik’s cube Check out my other videos showing you how to solve a 2×2 Rubik’s cube, a 3×3, a 4×4 and even a 5×5 So when solving the 5×5 Rubik’s Cube, you may run into this parity error First you’ve completed all the center pieces And then the next step is you start lining up all the edge pieces And you’ve completed every single edge piece, as in you’ve got all three colours the same Except for one The last one you’ve got the three colours on the correct edge except they’re sort of in an alternate pattern Now this is a parity error that you may run into However, if you watch my tutorial on how to solve the edge pieces I teach you a way where you will never actually run into this parity error anyway So you can avoid running into this parity error And if you want to learn how to do that then watch my tutorial on how to solve the edge pieces on a 5×5 Rubik’s cube But if you have run into this parity error somehow or you just want to learn how to get out of the parity error I’m going to show you now So this parity error, if you look at it Is basically the same parity error that you run into on the 4×4 Remember on the 4×4 where you come to make the blue cross on the top Sometimes you get this blue on the side and the other colour on the top and the other three are correct Well that’s a parity error on the 4×4 Well, it’s the same on the 5×5, just think these two are wrong And we will use the same algorithm that we used to solve the parity error on the 4×4 We will use the same one on the 5×5 So if you’ve already memorized that algorithm then you already know how to get out of this parity error Now if you haven’t, or you don’t know how to solve a 4×4 Unfortunately, the algorithm for this is quite long That’s why I teach you a method where you avoid this parity error altogether So, the algorithm that we will use is the algorithm from the 4×4 and that algorithm is (Rr)2 B2 U2 (Ll) U2 (Rr)i U2 (Rr) U2 F2 (Rr) F2 (Ll)i B2 (Rr)2 Okay, and the edge piece we’re working on we want on the top front face like this And we’re going to flip these two pieces So let’s do the algorithm (Rr)2 B2 U2 (Ll) U2 (Rr)i U2 (Rr) U2 F2 (Rr) F2 (Ll)i B2 (Rr)2 And that has corrected these two pieces and corrected the parity error Now we basically have a scrambled 3×3 and as I teach you on my 5×5 video, you now solve it the same way you would a 3×3 As I said before, if you want to avoid running into this parity error therefore you don’t need to learn this really long algorithm Then check out my other video showing you how to solve the edge pieces on a 5×5 And I show you the method on how into avoid running to this parity error altogether Hope it helped guys
