Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You should be able to firstly place the oxidation numbers of the main ions. For instance, group 1 ions have +1 Group 2 have +2 Hydrogen has +1 Oxygen has 2 For a given compound, you have to make an equation of the oxidation number of all elements present, equating them to zero. Simplifying that equation, we get \[MgI _{2}O _{6}\] For Mg we have 1 atom, for I we have 2 and for O, 6. The equation then becomes\[+2+2x+(2*6)=0\]
