    Why is it that propene is just propene and not prop-1-ene, even though there is a double bond present on the first carbon atom?

    Think about it, if it's on the first carbon bond it's prop-1-ene, if it's on the the second carbon bond, it's still prop-1-ene (you just count from the other direction the carbon number. The number between prop and ene should always be as low as possible (that's correct)
