Naming and Line structure 1.10

Give the systematic name for CH3CH2CH(CH3)C(CH3)3 and draw the line structure.

If the question only asked for name, could I use 1-tertbutyl-2-methylbutane? Or would the only name be 2, 2, 3-trimethylpentane?

Both seem fine to me. One of the TAs mentioned that in a scenario like this, the question would specify if the answer should include the longest carbon chain or not. If so, 2, 2, 3-trimethylpentane would be the answer.
