Expert Answer:





1.      First find the longest continuous parent chain of carbons, and name the chain.

       In the given compound the longest carbon chain is 7 carbon atoms.



2.      It is numbered from R – L because that way the branched carbon can have lowest number possible.

3.      So the IUPAC name of the compound is  3- methyl heptane
