Garlic Bread 12a

How do you determine the number of bonds you should use between Carbon and nitrogen/carbon and carbon/oxygen? Also is there a method to determining where the hydrogens should be placed or can you just do whatever works for the total number of valence e-?

I believe the number of bond that you should use is the number that would give you a 0 FC

you should calculate the formal charge on each atom and see what bond arrangement gives you a formal charge of 0 on most or all of the atoms.

in drawing the Lewis structure where do you put the formal charges?

Formal charge should be referenced to see how many bonds should be attached.

Formal charges can be annotated on the top right of your element symbol (ie. H, C, O). (There's not fixed position but I feel like this is the neatest way to display it. Just like normal charges and powers.)
