    http://www.tutor-homework.com/Chemistry_Help/Molecular_Geometry/017_Nitrosyl_Bromide_NOBr.html This should work. I don't know how to do this, but I'll try helping in anyway I can!

    I got that there are 18 total valence electrons and 1 nonbinding electrons. However, what Im mostly confused about it why there is a double bond between the O and the N. I had initially drawn it as just single bonds between all the 3 atoms and a nonbinding electron on Br. I thought it Br was the central atom b/c it was least electronegative.

    And not just single bonds around them all??

    "And not just single bonds around them all??" to allow all the atoms to have 8 electrons and be more stable
