Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Jess on Wednesday, April 6, 2011 at 2:17pm.

I have a question which asks...
What is the Oxidation number of Nitrogen in Cu(NO3)2
I know the answer is 5+ but how do you get that??

Cu= 2+
O= 2- (Theres 3 of them so -2x3=-6...then, theres a two out of the brackets so 6- x 2 =-12)
+2 - (-12)= -10? And then what?
I think my method is wrong. :/ It's really frustrating and i've been at the same question for over an hour now.
