Video Transcript

So let's go ahead and come up with all the constitutional isomers for C3H8, guys we can just go ahead and use our ihd but I'm going to go ahead and just draw this one time in full and then from here on I'm just, from after this problem just going to go ahead and solve it without drawing this, without writing out the whole thing, so this is C3H8, that's 2 times n, so that 2 times 3 plus 2 minus 8 all divided by 2, so that's 0 ihd, no double bonds or rings, so we get is just this, right? That's all we can do, so we can say CH3, CH2, CH3, alright? So, let's move on.
