# Benzene Problem

Does bromobenzene mean that a bromine is bonded to every carbon in the benzene ring?

When it saids 1-ethylbenzene where do i put the ethyl since benzene is in a ring?

no just one one carbon of the benzene, 1-bromobenzene.

so is it infered that whenever i see bromobenzene it means 1-bromobenzene? and where would i put the bromine if its 1 only?
