# 5x5 Rubiks Cube edge algorithm

I'm following the tutorial on Ruwix, and either they're making a mistake or I am. When solving the edges they give the image:

This is my first attempt at a 5x5 and this step confused me for a long time, as it kept messing up my solved edges. I finally realised that the edge they have marked pink is NOT the one that gets broken, instead it's one further CCW. So instead of the algorithm u' R U R' u I find I need to do Uw' R U R' u (or have the broken edge further around on the TOP face).

Can anyone confirm this move, or hint at my mistake?

So yes, the site uses u to to mean what you know as Uw. For larger cubes they use $$U_2$$.
• Oh you are freaking kidding me!! I was following the 4x4 Ruwix page which says Lowercase letters mark inner slice turns. u' = Uw' U. Did not expect the same site to use two different notations :( – Ian Sep 9 '19 at 22:30
