Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1octane is actually a very specific thing when used by laypeople to talk about fuel, it's an 8 carbon alkane chain and I think it has some branching, I just looked it up, they use isooctane as the rating for fuels, which has an IUPAC name of 2,2,4trimethylpentane which is just a way to name the graph: dw:1444203673782:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Systematic naming of compounds is something everyone learns to do in organic chemistry 1, so it's pretty useful when looking stuff up, but yeah each vertex is a carbon atom and it is assumed that each carbon has 4 bonds (4 edges) however there aren't 4 bonds at every corner. That's because hydrogen atoms are assumed to be bonded otherwise.
