CO3(2-) Carbanato

Because CO3(2-) can either be monodentate or bidentate do we use bi- tri- etc as the prefix or bis- tris-?

I'm not sure about what the prefix for carbonato is, but where did you learn that it was both monodentate and bidentate? I've just been assuming it's monodentate :/

Hmm, I saw it stated as such when looking it up earlier. I see in our textbook it's only referred to as monodentate so I'm just going to go with that.
