  1. For HgCl2, you know Cl is -1, there are two of them for a total of -2. Since HgCl2 must be zero, what must Hg be for that to happen? Hg must be +2 so that +2 and -2 = 0.
    PbO2. O is -2, there are two of them for a total of -4. So Pb must be +4 so that +4 and -4 = 0.
    The others are done the same way. OH is -1.
    PO4 is -3.
