Does organic nomenclature use an ordinal numbering system or summation numbering system?

Consider the following molecule:|dw:1377706103468:dw| I argue the name of this molecule is 2,3-dimethylcyclopentene while my professor argues the name of the molecule is 1,6-dimethylcyclopentene. Who is correct?

You're both wrong. This is a cyclohexene.

Well, according to IUPAC nomenclature, you want to number in the lowest numbering possible. But for this molecule, it looks as if you're both right. I don't see why you shouldn't get credit for writing either or on an exam. Double bonds have priority, and they are both methyl groups. I would of written 2,3 as my answer.

No, the prof is right because with 1,6 you get the lowest numbering (1 as opposed to 2). You always pick the numbering that starts with 1.

I guess I need to review my IUPAC rules @Preetha
