    I understand the theory behind it, but I'm struggling to compare these compounds because they don't have any ions in common. How could I do this?

    The strength of the ionic bond increases inversely proportional to the bend length.

    You are given the ionic sizes, so you can work out the lengths and therefore the relative strengths.
