What are your own ideas. Draw decane first. Then place on C4 and C7 a methyl group. The same you do with the C3 and C5.

Example 2-Methylpropane

You draw first propane C-C-C, then you take the C2 and add one CH3 group.
So do the same with your compound.

Hey! I am new to this forum. Actually I am from https://worldpostalcode.com/canada/quebec/montreal and found it occasionally. But even reading between the line, I see a lot of motivation here. It makes me add this thread to my favorites and study it in more detail. I bet there is plenty of new information I will discover for myself. It is also interesting to see other discussions here.
