Just wanting to make sure..

When we are given a problem such as....

Write the electron configurations of (a)the copper (I) ion and (b) the copper(II) ion does "copper (I)" signify that are asking for the configuration of Cu+? and "copper (II)" Cu2+?
Thanks!

That is correct, the roman numerals represent the oxidation state, aka the charge, on the metal. So yes the copper (I) is Cu+ and copper (II) is Cu2+.
