The answer key says the answer is 3-chloro-3-fluoropropene. Shouldn't the answer be 1-chloro-1-fluoro-2-propene? The two halogens should be on carbon 1 because they get priority over the triple bond. Or am I missing something?
When I read the Halides section of the book again, it did not say anything about the halides getting priority over the triple bond. So, that's why I think the answer is the way it is in the textbook. Hope this helps!
