    I just want to confirm that my forumlas to the following two organic compounds are correct:

    Propylethanoate ---> CH3COOCH2CH2CH3

    Ethylhepatnoate -----> CH3CH2CH2CH2CH2CH2COOCH2CH3

    Are they correct that way?

    Thanks.

    The top one seems fine but the bottom one contains one too many carbons for the heptanoate ie it should be 7 but you have 8
