    It has to do with chemical formulas.

    Is [tex]Ba(OH)_2[/tex] the same as [tex]BaO_2H_2[/tex]?

    Also, is [tex]Al(NO_3)_3[/tex] the same as [tex]AlN_3O_9[/tex]?

    Thanks.

    Simple answer. Yes.

    All though the first formulas give you much better information on the structure of the compound.
