( b ) The longest continuous chain is indicated and numbered as shown. In alphabetical order, the substituents are ethyl (at C-5), methyl (at C-2), methyl (at C-6). The IUPAC name is 5-ethyl-2,6-dimethylnonane. ( c ) Fill in the hydrogens in the alkane to identify the various kinds of groups present. There are f ve methyl (CH 3 ) groups, f ve methylene (CH 2 ) groups, and three methine (CH) groups in the molecule. ( d ) A primary carbon is attached to one other carbon.
