Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's a structural isomer for octane: 4methylheptane. Yes, it says heptane in the name, but that's only because heptane is the parent chain. It is an alkane with 8 carbon atoms, so it is a structural isomer of octane, not heptane. You're looking for a compound with the molecular formula C7H16. Take off any terminal carbon from your drawing and you have a structural isomer of heptane.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, heptane has 7 carbons. I forgot the formula for determining hydrogens, I think it's 2n+2 or something like that, but Just rearrange them around in different orientations.
