The roman numeral usually goes after the metal at the end in parenthesis and it gives the metal's oxidation state, which is basically the charge of the metal. In order to figure this out, you have to look at the charge of what is given and determine what charge of the metal would add up to that charge. Make sure to consider the charges of your ligands that are inside the coordination compound. Hope this helps!
How do you know if the roman numeral given is positive or negative, because if it's a positive three and negative three it's still written the same right? Just a roman numeral three? Do you have to look at the other parts of the compound?
