Homework Help: Chemistry(Please answer)

Posted by Hannah on Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 8:58pm.

How many chirality centers does the compound 1,3-dibromo-2,4-dichloro-5-fluorocyclopentane have?

This compound has three different elements, a Br which is repeated twice, a cl which is also repeatd twice, and a fluorine. I was thinking that the number of centers would be 3 because I only counted the cl and br once.

Is this correct or would it be five?
