You use Bis, Tris, Tetrakis, and Pentakis when the ligand itself has a prefix on it. These new prefixes will help denote how much of a ligand you have whereas the ones already on the ligand denote how much of an element you have within a ligand. This is to help avoid redundancy when naming.
would someone be able to provide examples of when you would use these examples? I understand the concept but I actually haven't seen any problems in the HW or have come across any problems that deal with this...
