So if you have two or more ligands that are bidentate, or can attach to more than one site, and these ligands are next to each other, then another central atom can create a bond with these two to form a chelate. A chelate will create a ring with the original coordinate compound. I recommend looking at the solution for 17.35, the graphic there is really helpful to illustrate what I'm saying.
