The Y has a charge of -2 snd there are 3 Ys hence Y3 so the Y has a charge -6 The compound is going to be neutral so equal to 0 so to get 0 from -6 we need to have a +6, you notice that there are 2 Xs hence X2 so 6/2=3 so the charge on X is +3
ohh ok i understand your explanation, but -3 isn't in the answer choices
omg whoops
