Homework problem 1.17

Postby Frances Relampagos 1J » Tue Mar 01, 2016 11:45 pm

Why is the answer 4-tert-Butyl-1,2-dimethylcyclohexane and not 1-tert-Butyl-3,4-dimethylcyclohexane?

Our numbering schemes could either be:

1,2,4

OR

1,3,4

Both options have 1 as the first number, so we move onto the second number. Option A has 2 and option B has 3 as the second number, so we are done, Option A is better for numbering.
