If the complex has a negative charge, we are suppose to add -ate to the end of the metal name. However, the textbook says that we add -ate to the end of the Latin stem of the metal (if metal originates from a Latin name). As a result, should we familiarize ourselves with the Latin stems?

You do not have to but Its helpful to know the latin names so it is easier to name it
