## Homework Statement

8) How might you prepare each of the following molecules using a nucleophilic substitution at some step?

a) (CH3)3-O-CH3

b)CH3CH2CH2CH2CN

## Homework Equations

none

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm really not sure what's being asked.

I'm going to assume that I need to pick a leaving group and substitute it with some kind of nucleophile...

So...for part a I chose O for the leaving group and part b I chose CN as the leaving group.

However, I have no clue where to go from there...what am I trying to create?

Thanks for any help!!
