We are asked to identify the coordination number of the anion in MgS.

We are given that the coordination number for Mg2+ ion is usually six and this assumption holds. To answer this, we shall use the following equation:

Anion C.N. = Cation C.N.(# of cations per formula unit# of anions per formula unit)

Where: C.N. = Coordination Number
