What is the first guideline for IUPAC naming of organic compounds?

Start with the parent chain and then focus on the number of bonds, functional groups, and substituents.

Remember to keep the numbers as low as possible!

Keep in mind that triple bonds have priority for lowest numbering in alkynes

Also keep in mind that the order of priority for assigning the number to a carbon goes functional group, number of bonds, and then substituents.
