3.41 part c

When drawing a Lewis structure for glycine, H2C(NH2)COOH, are there rules I should know to determine which atoms are bonded together in the structure?

you would draw the lewis structure the same way the atoms are presented in the formula

When solving this, just make sure to keep the elements in the parenthesis (NH2) together and to put the two Carbon atoms in the center of the structure. By using these "rules", you should be able to use the normal rules of Lewis structures to find this Lewis structure.
(PS there will be no elements that break the octet rule in this example.)
