I need an answermolecular/electron geometry

Can anyone help me out with the differences between electron geometry and molecular geometry for SCl6?
I think the molecular geometry is octahedral, but I'm not so sure for the electron geometry. Thanks :)
*My earlier post wasn't answered, so I'd appreciate some help please =]

The molecular geometry is octahedral and you are correct. If you draw the Lewis structure, you will see it has no unpaired electrons on the central atom(S); therefore, the electronic geometry is octahedral, also.

THanks so much

i need to know the answer to the following question. A circle is drawn on a piece of 1 centimeter graph paper. It covers 20 squares and 6 partial squares. Estimate the area of the circle.

How could you verify whether or not EBF is congruent to EBD?
