3.39 bracket question

Postby Katarina Ho -1B » Mon May 21, 2018 11:48 pm

Hello, in this problem it asks to draw the lewis dot structure for ionic compounds my question is how do you know which molecule gets brackets around it?

I believe you would put the brackets around the entire ionic compound because the charge applies to the compound as a whole.

I think you would place the brackets around the whole compound too because the charge has to do with the entire compound.
