Naming alkanes

posted by on .

Its been a long time since I did this but I believe you pick the longest chain. If there are double and triple bonds involved, pick the longest chain that contains the double bond plus single bonds to go with it (but that is for alkenes isn't it?)

When naming alkanes do you choose the path with the most constituents or the least?

Thanks from Sheryl
