In high school I learned a different equation for the formal charge. It is FC = valence e- - owned e- (the electrons that the atom has in the structure. The equation we learned in class is FC = VE - NE - 1/2 * BE. I believe you get the same answer either way, but is one equation more reliable to use than the other?
