Question

Draw each of the following compounds:

(b) 1,2,3,4-Tetramethylcycloheptane

Video Transcript

Alright guys. So, for this question again les this name right 1, 2, 3, 4 tetramethyl cycloheptane and it wants us to draw a compound to relate to that name, so what I notice first is, let's break down this route, cycloheptane, so it's going to be a ring, with how many carbons? No, not six, right? Seven carbons. So, in order to do that we're going to draw this seven membered ring, okay? And we're going to number it. So, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7, okay? So there's a ring and now we have just four different methyls. Now, since you're already numbered it, we know exactly where to put these methyls, right? We just know we're going to add methyls all right here, and there we go, we just drew out the compound for this, so when it says tetra methyl that tetra indicates that there's going to be four different metals and the numbers tell you exactly where to put them. So, just by breaking down this name we arrived at our compound. Alright guys, let me know if you have any questions.
