That worked out perfectly! I understand where you're going now! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Use the electron-dot symbols to show how the bonding (covalent or ionic) takes place. Use as many of each atom as needed for:

1. Carbon and Hydrogen

2.Silicon and Fluorine

try combinig the atoms in carbon and hydrogen; silicon and fluorine by using the perdioc table

CH4 and SiF4 are the formulae.

These are VERY hard to draw on the computer. I will do CH4 and you can do SiF4.

  H
  ..
H:C:H
  ..
  H


See how that looks. I may change it.

That's probably close enough for you to see how it's done.
