How long does it take for most people in the world to put a Rubik's Cube together?

Most people can't do the Rubik's Cube at all. Of those who can do it, 5 minutes is a good but slow time, 2 minutes is a fast time and the world record is 20.0 seconds (Dan Knights, August 2003.)

On January 14, 2006, Leyan Lo, a twenty-year-old California Institute of Technology student, set a new world record of 11.13 seconds for solving the Cube. Though he was lucky in that his Cube happened to be scrambled in a way that allowed him to skip a step of his solution, this still counts as the official world record.

It takes an average of 48 to 100 tries to solve a Rubik's Cube puzzle and if done perfectly, any Rubik's Cube combination can be solved in 17 turns.

Now, the new world record for Rubik's Cube is 7.08 seconds by Erik Akkersdijk of the Netherlands.

Though that's the official world record, there are "speedcubers" who have unofficially made times under 7 seconds.
