Bromine Hopping

Chemistry Level 3

Starting with 3-acetyl-2,4-pentadione, precede through the reactions shown above. \(B\) and \(D\) will both be products that have the standard name: \(\boxed{Number}\)-bromo-3-ethyl pentane. You must determine which carbon (\(c\)) positions the Bromine will be in products \(B\) and \(D\). Find the difference of those positions going from product \(B\) to \(D\).

For example, if the Bromine is on \(c_5\) of product \(B\) and \(c_1\) of product \(D\) then your answer will be \(5 - 1 = 4\).

Use IUPAC numbering protocol when answering this question.
