In today's lecture, Dr. Lavelle talked about being able to tell oxidation states. How can you tell the oxidation state from the # of ligands or the coordination #?

By understanding oxidation sates of various ligands, you can determine (from the overall coordination compound charge) the oxidation state of the transition metal.

Thank you for explaining, I couldn't quite understand it in lecture.
