If I have CO2 how would the Lewis structure look? and would the central atom be carbon? How many lone pairs would there be? Is ther any double or triple bonds? How many single bonds are there? and how many C are bonded to the O?

Not quite. Yes the molecule is linear, but it might help if you draw the dots! It will help you see where there are extra lone pairs to bond. You can do a double bond on these.

How would u do that?

Draw the electrons on each atom. each oxygen has six and carbon has four. TWO of which are already bonding. Use that to help you see how you can do more bonding.

Remember, you must satisfy the octet rule.

|dw:1362715556829:dw| im not sure but two dots on each O and thn one on each side of the C?

Notice the two lone electrons on carbon. and the extra lone electron on oxygens. |dw:1362715808179:dw|

So there should be two dots on C and two on top of each O and two around the O?

you can place them anywhere, but as you can see, you have one elctron that can form a second bond. making it a double bond with oxygen and carbon on both sides.
