**Fri Feb 26, 2016 11:44 pm**The question asks you to write the structural formula for 2-methyl-2-butene, I know how to go about solving this but I had two other questions:

1) For a structural formula is it incorrect to include the double bonds in the formula? For instance (CH

2) Additionally, I first got the answer CH

1) For a structural formula is it incorrect to include the double bonds in the formula? For instance (CH

_{3})_{2}C=CHCH_{3}? Or should I not include the double bond because it is implied?2) Additionally, I first got the answer CH

_{3}CHC(CH_{3})_{2}which is the given answer but backwards. Does that mean my answer is incorrect or can the structural formula be written either way?
