[b]1. This is my first posting, I am having trouble naming alkanes. I believe my first two problems are correct, but am unsure. The third problem I am having trouble with. I am just not sure what to name the branches coming off the carbon chain.
[b]3. Problem 1 :4-carbon chain makes it butane. The branches at both C2 and C3 are methyl, so the name is 2,3-dimethylbutane.
Problem 2: 6-carbon chain makes it hexane. The branch at C2 is butyl. The branch at C3 is ethyl, so the name is 2-butyl-3-ethylbutane.
8-carbon chain= octane
branch at C3 is methyl
branches at 4C are methyl and ethyl
That is where I get stuck on the name. Is it 4-ethyl-4,3-dimethyloctane??
Thanks very much for your input!

I can't get the equations to display properly! I will edit as soon as I figure it out :)
