We are asked to convert the following hashed-wedged line formula into its condensed formula.

The condensed structure shows us the connectivity of the molecule.

The use of parentheses is important:

__Parentheses with no subscripts:__Branch on the chain.__Parenthesis with subscripts:__Multiple branches on a chain.__CH__Repeating CH_{2 }within parentheses + subscripts:_{2 }units within a chain.

Convert the following hashed-wedged line formula into its condensed formula.
