I'll give you a clue, since its your assignment. Take CaCl3. It cant be right because Ca has a charge of +2 while Cl has a charge of -1. If you add the charges together, there is a total charge of -1. Thats just not possible, so the correct answer would be CaCl2, which is Calcium Chloride. See if you can workd out the others. Tip, use your periodic table.

Then that formula is correct: barium sulfite

All the others instead are wrong. (HgOH could, in theory, be ok, but it should be written in another way).

We are just naming Binary and seomting else ions. And figureing out all thir charges and stuff. Its simple

CaCl3 should be CaCl2 for a start and the rest carry on in much the same vein; the ionic charges don't match up.
