I am working on this homework and not sure if I have the answers right or not. I want to make sure I am understanding this because this counts as a big part of my grade. I think the answer should be Rh(HSO4) right? I also had some other questions as well.

The valency of rhodium = 3 so the ion is Rh3+. The hydrogen sulphate ion is HSO4-. So putting these together gives us Rh3+(HSO4-)3

Notice the number of positive charges = number of negative ions in the formula

i intentionally register on this site since i know i can learn many thing related to chemistry. and i submit a reply to this thread not as an answer to the questions but just an idea of chemistry background. i have failed chemistry two times in my college which is one each for chemistry one and chemistry two. in fact, i wonder how did i passed my college without mastering all those formulas. i have to learn again as i have a kid now and i'm sure that in one of this days my kid will ask for my help or to teach or tutor the chemistry lesson. oh gush, if i could only turn back time. buy soundcloud followers
