Homework Help: How to predict?

  1. Jan 19, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hello, could you please explain to me in simple terms how I can predict the chemical formula of the compounds produced when Group 7 elements are reacted with the elements in Group 1.


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    What do you know about chemistry already?

    Well I just find it a tricky question, hah. Simply because I only get 2 markings so I fundamentally have 1 chance of correcting it before the final marking and what I had already written appareantly didn't elaborate on it enough...hence I am asking for your knowledge too so I can combine them. Thanks.

    Well then tell me what you already wrote I'll get in trouble if I just give you the answer, I already have a warning to my name lol :).

    Well I don't have an elaboration apparently. So what i've written won't enable you to add further information, if you know what I mean. Simply because you may mistakenly rewrite what I have got and I don't want that hehe.

    We are in a stalemate lol except you are gonna lose. Trust me I know the answer.

    Which is what I would like to know hence my reason for asking the question here, heh.

    Dude this is an extremely basic question I can't just answer it for you.

    Your answer isn't going to mislead me besides you already told me it was wrong.

    What's the point in this forum if the helper isn't going to provide a part of his/her knowledge..for something simple but misleading.
