    If aluminum has a positive 3 charge and chlorine has a negative 1 charge, then the formula becomes AlCl3, because the negative three in chlorine would balance out the positive 3 in aluminum right? So, what about this? Silion has a positive 4 charge. and neon has a neutral charge. What would the compound be?

    You posted this exact question already. If the previous discussion doesn't satisfy you, look for answers on Google or ask your paid instructor/teacher.
