Bromination of an alkene

  1. Mar 15, 2012 #1
    I am asked for the "actual products" of reacting Br(2) with:

    trans-1,2-diphenylethene
    and
    cis-1,2-diphenylethene

    I know their structures. And I know that each Br will attach to each side of the double bond. Are there three products for each? ...with the products being isomers?
