### Order When Writing

Simple question but on the final do we write the Hybridization as dsp^3 and d^2sp^3 or sp^3d and sp^3d^2?

I think either would be fine since they're both correct.

Both are correct but I think the preferred way is to right it beginning with d.

Both are correct! Lavelle seems to like the notation with d in the beginning. Either way, you wouldn't get marked down for using one instead of the other. Hope this helps!
