How do you find the shape of the molecule if there are two central atoms?

I'm pretty sure you just say that it has two different shapes (one for each central atom)

We didn't go over this scenario in lecture so I would assume it's not something we need to know for this week. However, you could determine that the bond angle would be 180 between the central atoms and the structure around each central atom would depend on the atoms around it.

if there are two central atoms, you treat each central atom as its own thing
