so I read that an ions (single or groups of atoms) are charged particles but ionic compounds have an overall charge of 0 so whatt am i getting wronggg????

Ions, e.g. Na + and Cl- are ions as they have a charge yes?
So when they come together as NaCl, the + and - charges balance/cancel each other out, to give an uncharged ionic compound (so basically an overall charge of 0)
Hope this helps!

so even if its more than one ion together it can be charged? and if so it wouldnt be an ionic compound because they wont have overall charge of 0?

Sorry i don't quite understand what u mean
as for the last q: An ionic compund is a metal bonded to a non metal, e.g. NaCl. Even though this compound has an overall charge of 0, it is still an ionic compound, bc of the types of elements involved (metal and non metal)
Do you understand now?
