    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have attached the picture of the compound .I can't figure the name , and the aromatic nomenclature is making me dizzy.:cry::cry:

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know ether is named as alkoxy benzene and 2 benzene ring attached is called naphthalene
    But i don't know anything further and i don't if is naphthalene an IUPAC name or not.I tried combining the names but it didn't seem right .How do i name this thing?
    Any help would really appreciated !
