Name the compound

Postby Nhi Vo 3A » Mon Feb 27, 2017 11:39 pm

(CH3)2CHCH(CH2CH3)2

I get confuse when the compound is written like this. If possible, can you draw its line structure please. Thank you

The two after the first (CH3) indicates that two methyl groups are attached to the first carbon in the chain.
