The parent name of the molecule is determined by the number of carbons in the longest chain.
In the case where two chains have the same number of carbons, the parent is the chain with the most substituents.
The carbons in the chain are numbered starting from the end nearest the first substituent.
In the case where there are substituents having the same number of carbons from both ends, numbering starts from the end nearest the next substituent.
When more than one of a given substituent is present, a prefix is applied to indicate the number of substituents. Use di- for two, tri- for three, tetra- for four, etc. and use the number assigned to the carbon to indicate the position of each substituent.
