Beautiful Sodium-Chloride crystal

Chemistry Level 1

Sodium chloride, also known as salt, common salt, table salt or halite, is an ionic compound with the formula NaCl\ce{NaCl}, representing equal proportions of sodium and chlorine. In chemistry, an ionic compound is a chemical compound in which ions are held together in a lattice structure by ionic bonds. In case of sodium chloride, the cation is NaX+\ce{Na+} and the anion is ClX\ce{Cl-}. In solid sodium chloride, how many NaX+\ce{Na+} ions are surrounding one ClX\ce{Cl-} ion?
