Question 6A on 2013 Final

Postby Elias Ruben 1O » Sat Mar 18, 2017 11:00 pm

The name of the organic molecule in the course reader is 1,5,5,6-tetramethylcyclohex-1-ene. Shouldn't the name be 2,3,4,4-tetramethylcyclohex-1-ene though, since it has lower numbers?

The course reader answer has a 1 as the lowest number, while your proposed answer has a 2 as its lowest. Since 1<2, the course reader is correct. I think it's not necessarily about having overall lower numbers, it's just having THE lowest number.
