the name of the compound, tin(II) fluoride tells you how to write it. Tin(II) means that the tin ion is carrying a +2 charge. Fluorine on the periodic table is one column short of neon, group 17, ergo it usually carries a -1 charge. Much like a dosing table, the periodic table will tell all once you can read it.

That is a good response Jetzt. GothNurse, you will need a periodic table. Tin has the symbol Sn, Floride is F. Tin (II) tells you that the charge on the Tin is +2, Since the charge on a Fluoride is -1, You will need 2 F to balance the Sn+2. So you get, SnF2.

Try Iron (III) Oxide.
