  2. If there is a tie between longest chains, choose the chain that gives the __________ substituents.
  3. Number the chain from the end closest to the double bond and provide a number for its location.   
  4. Substituents will be named alphabetically and a number will accompany the location of their attachment.
  5. If more than one of a similar alkyl group is present then we must use numerical prefixes to describe the number of them.
