Oxyanions: how is the number of oxygen atoms determined?
It doesn't make sense.
I'm learning how to name the compounds, where there's "one more, one less, or the normal amount" of oxygen atoms.
But how is that determined anyway--how do I know if the compound has one less or one more atom, or if it's got the "normal" amount??
