Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im not sure if you are trying to find the "formal charges" for this but if you are then you have to draw the lewis structure and then use the formula: # valence electron of the atom  lone pairs  # bonds = formal charge for example look at the lewis structure of water ( H2O ) if you want to know the charge of Oxygen then follow the formula: 6 > valence electrons of oxygen 4 > dots (lone pairs) 2 > the number of bonds (with hydrogen) therefore: 642 = 0 so oxygen has a zero charge I hope this was what you looking for and I helped you :D Good luck!!!
