On the basis of the expected charges on the monatomic ions, give the chemical formula of each of the following compounds: (a) magnesium arsenide; (b) indium(III) sulfide; (c) aluminum hydride; (d) hydrogen telluride; (e) bismuth(III) fluoride.

Telluride has a 2-, so it would need two Hydrogens since each Hydrogen has a 1+ charge.
