Many people find it beneficial to draw the C-C bonds in the order indicated. Cyclohexane contains twelve hydrogens; six are axial and six are equatorial. All equatorial bonds are parallel to C-C bonds in the chair: Practice drawing properly parallel equatorial hydrogens on the chairs you drew above . Axial bonds go up when attached to a carbon pointing up and down when bonded to a carbon pointing down. Draw all axial hydrogens on the chairs you drew above . There should now be twelve hydrogens on each chair. Note that when the axial hydrogen is down, the equatorial hydrogen on the same carbon is up, and vise versa.
