    Two steps needed.

    What are they?

    (BTW, you don't need the spaces next to the hyphens)

    I am not going to just do it for you. I will happily help you to do it, but I will not just tell you the answer.

    How about this for a start point? Can you list all the other reactions that you have been taught of aldehydes? (if you don't want to, you don't have to type them here) Then think about all of the reactions that you have been taught for each of the possible products of the various first steps you have considered.

    The other way of thinking about it might be to work backwards. What reactions do you know of that can create an alkene? Then think of how you could get from the aldehyde to those chemicals.

    Ok, thank you. I'll think of the reactions first.
